SUNYATTA


The seed for Calabash was planted two doors from the world famous Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NY with the opening of 'Pyramid Tea & Herbal' in 1976. As the counter help at Pyramid, her parent’s healthfood shop & juice bar, Sunyatta trained as a 5th generation master herbalist and later as a Naturopath - learning the medicinal value of global teas, foods & spices. Since being able to peek over the shop counter, she has served NYC residents alongside health-seeking celebrities. For many decades Sunyatta accompanied her Syrian-Jamaican/Cuban family on spice buying adventures, while daydreaming of outfitting Pyramid with the fabrics & decor of these exotic destinations.
