Hey Mary,
Is this the same type of clay that you purchase from Soul Sista? I'm waiting on my delivery & hope it is good as you describe.

Hi Alabama Red how are you doing tonight ? Yes it the same as Soul Sista Clay .I really hope you find your earthy taste in it that you looking for I know I did .At first the smoke taste and gritty pebbles had to grow on me . I just keep chewing and tasting and before I know it all 18 egg shape was gone (.Lol ) I was wanting and craving more . Plz keep me posted I really wanna know how you like it. Today I went bought me 2 bottles of iron pills hopefully my craving can slow down a bit .Cause When my next order of Ghana clay comes in I dont want to eat them all up in a day ,which now I have no problem doing.

@anjali I guess you can order from leslie she does it for US that is nearer for you....because to send from UK it will unnecessarily increase the postage cost...and the Indian roasted clay I guess we won't get it outside India....no clue about that I guess the nakumatt once resembles to the Indian roasted clay but none sells that.....

Great News!!! Definitely let us know when we can start placing orders. If this happens then I have only one other clay that I would like to try which is odowa. Thanks ladies for helping to make these clays accessible for us to purchase.
Yes of course I will do and I'm still on the hunt for the odowa too! Hopefully when I start selling again I will have some for you.

Multanni Mitti eaters can you tell me what the texture is like because I think I may have eaten it before from an asian shop in Manchester. Is it the one that is khaki/yellow in colour, creamy and sticks in the mouth?

Looks like the images above? If that's it I will try and find out if they still sell it because it has been a while since I tried it.

Can you tell us whether the Tanzanian clay is processed in any way, or completely natural?

Well my supplier sent me a picture I'll upload it in a minute but basically I was expecting soil cakes like the Haitians going from how it has been described on the forum in the past but it surprisingly resembles the ghana shaped clay more. Makes sense to me as, assuming it's soil clay rather than clay chunks, makes it easier to sell. Either way for me I'd bake it as i bake any clay I eat.

It's been a couple days since I ran out of clay . So far so good . No cravings yet . I wonder how long this will last before I start craving white dirt again .

I know! The clay in your link is from tanzania so I think it's the same. My one looks smaller though doesn't it. I'm thinking it will be super earthy in taste too!
