The seed for Calabash was planted 2 doors from the world famous Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NY in 1976. Serving at her parent’s herbal shop & juice bar, owner Sunyatta trained alongside master herbalists learning the medicinal value of teas & spices. Sunyatta accompanied her family on tea and spice buying trips, all the while dreaming of a shop that emulated those exotic destinations.

Calabash defines sexiness in DC's Shaw neighborhood, serving aromatic teas and tonics for all of your moods, locally baked vegan treats, kombucha on tap, and fair trade coffee.
