Culture in Harlem: Serengeti Teas & Spices

C360_2015-05-03-18-28-49-903It is almost impossible to have dull conversation at a venue featuring a modern minimalist décor accented with an Afro-centric theme, culminated with flavorful teas, coffees, spices, baked goods and hot chocolate!  Serengeti Teas & Spices has continued to be one of my favorite hotspots in Harlem! The myriad of tea recipes are concocted from harvested ingredients directly from East Africa, offering customers the highest quality in organic blends. If you are just a tea lover (like me) or an actual tea connoisseur, you will absolutely love this place and what it hasto offer.  Whether you have a cold, are suffering from allergies or feeling lethargic, or just need a quick refresher, ask for John – the mixologist and he will make a potion to fit your needs!  Stop by and enjoy!

  1. Reflect. Start with the person you see in the mirror. Work on yourself so you can organically work on your community.
  2. Action.Sharing your opinion via social media is great. It is even better when your actions supports your words!
  3. Awareness.Social media is a great outlet for spreading awareness. Spread awareness every chance you get! Share videos and pictures pertaining to your cause. Write about it and give as much information so that others can support it as well.
  4. Support.Research businesses, programs, organizations and community events that support your cause. Utilize some of your time and money towards them. Use social media and word of mouth to market each entity you are supporting.
  5. Read.Don’t just follow what’s trending. Truly awaken yourself and read more about your cause so that you can understand what you are fighting for.
  6. Vote.If you believe the government system is unfair, then cast your vote for the different positions in government: local, state, and federal.
  7. Build. Try to collectively clean your community. Don’t forget to tell your neighbors to stop contributing to polluting their own community as well!
  8. Teach. “It takes a village to raise a child” – African Proverb. Teachers inside and outside the classroom can work together to teach the leaders of tomorrow. We can also teach and guide each other through intellectual conversations. Let’s help each other to open our third eye!
  9. Respect.During this time of despair people are filled with emotions and are passionate about their opinions. It’s great to have debates, however, remember who you are fighting against!
  10. Love. Be patient and spread love.
