Calabash Tea & Tonic
Love Potion #10 isn't a perfume, cocktail, or shade of semigloss paint—it's a tea. And it's a very special loose-leaf tea at that, hand-blended from a recipe created by Sunyatta Amen's grandmother. Sunyatta grew up helping out in her parents' herbal shop in Harlem and accompanied them on trips to foreign locales to buy their wares. So it is no surprise that she went on to open her own shop, Calabash Tea & Tonic, where she can share her passion for teas, spices, and all things aromatic and healing.
Sunyatta has made multiple appearances on the morning news, educating viewers about how to make the perfect cup of chai while touting the benefits of buying loose teas versus skimpy bagged teas. Her potent full-leaf blends can be brewed twice or more while still retaining their flavor and beneficial essences.
