Camellia's Sin Tea Parlor in Carlisle, PA

In Carlisle, Pennsylvania there's a sweet, innocent little tearoom called Camellia's Sin Tea Parlor and Gift Shop. Camellia sinensus is the botanical name for the tea plant; hence, Camellia's "SIN".

My friend Jacqui and I met there this afternoon for a luncheon tea. Relax, sit back with a warm cup of tea and come along to the tea room with us.

Tea was served of course - a delicious house blend, and a snowflake coconut.

Guests may choose to wear a fancy hat.

Delectable and delicate treats were served - from carrot-orange soup, to chicken salad to asparagus fingers. And, sweet little dessert treats for the grand finale.

Jacqui... And, just look at the tiers of scrumptious treats!

Look around. You're immersed in "everything" tea.

A soft curtain hangs across the doorway between the tearoom and gift shop.

Very girlie-girl gifts can be found in the gift shop.

  3. Hi Cheryl,

    This is my kind of place Cheryl! Really enjoyed all your great photos of this tea room. I could just picture being there with you, having tea and chatting up a storm! :)

    Subjects for still life abound at this tea room. I love china and find it so nostalgic in still life paintings.

    Thanks so much for posting! Look forward to more tea tours. Still think you could make awesome little books from your tours. You are so good at them :D
