Here's part of the confusion.  Guinea pepper is used to refer to Afromomum 
melegueta (Grains of Paradise), Piper guineense (West African Pepper and a 
common substitute for P. cubeba) and Xylopia aethiopica (Grains of Selim). 
I suspect that what she has are P. guineense and they are the closest in 
taste to cubebs.
