The term kola nut usually refers to the seeds of certain species of plant of the genus Cola, placed formerly in the cocoa family Sterculiaceae and now usually subsumed in the mallow family Malvaceae. These cola species are trees native to the tropical rainforests of Africa. Their caffeine-containing seeds are used as flavoring ingredients in beverages applied to various carbonated soft drinks, from which the name cola originates.


The kola nut, sometimes also called the cola nut, is a type of edible nut that comes from the kola tree, which is native to West Africa. These trees can grow up to 60 feet tall and are notable for their vibrant yellow flowers and star-shaped fruits, each of which contains two to five kola nuts. These healthy nuts are high in caffeine and often used as an herbal supplement and natural food flavoring. The kola nut taste is initially very bitter, but it becomes sweeter when chewed. The nuts can be dried, giving them a much more mild flavor and nutmeg-like aroma.

The dried nuts can be ground into a powder and used to make drinks. Bissy tea is made from the powder and has a mild, earthy, slightly herbaceous flavor with a medicinal aroma. The drink contains caffeine and is a powerful stimulant to enhance mental alertness.
