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.
