Wild Tonka Bean

Tonka, a Kalinago word, a bean traditionally used in the preparation of cacao potions to ignite passion, bolster courage and attract luck. My great-grandmother used tonka to flavour her pot before cooking. Obeah women conjure up essential oils and seductive fragrances – smells encountered wandering bush at dawn, following scent trails spiriting out of undergrowth into a giant kumaru, flush with fruits and tales whispered in a forgotten language.
