 Where  Memories are Made


  Everything we do is out of love for you and respect for our planet with special consideration to organically grown.

                                                                  -Lin Jackman

Camellia's Sin Tea Parlor is the creation of Lin Jackman, who previously owned Lynnwood Herb Farm & Gift Shop. 


The tea parlor opened in November 2005 and quickly became a popular destination among Carlisle residents and visitors alike. What better way to spend a lovely afternoon, than strolling along Pomfret Street in Historic  downtown Carlisle, pausing for a delicious array of flavored black, green and Rooibos teas, complete with home-made soups, organic seasonal salads, delicious scones with curd and cream, and three tiers of sandwiches, meat pies, tarts, cupcakes, pies, cookies and more. Hungry yet? You won't be when you leave!  And just so you remember us, we have an enchanting Gift Shop where you can stock up on those wonderful, one-of-a-kind teas, accessories, jewelry, clothing, stationery, Fairy trappings, and so much more. Perfect for a special day out!

And one more thing...Camellia's sinensus, is the botanical name of the tea plant, hence our name Camellia's "Sin".

Did you know that ALL the tea you drink comes from this one plant?

CHOCOLATE CHIP (a blend of semi sweet and white chocolate for you chocoholics)

WHITE CHOCOLATE CHERRY (the addition of white chocolate and dried cherries makes this scone yummy).  Add a little almond extract and wow!

CRANBERRY ORANGE a favorite during the fall and holiday season for sure but I love them anytime of year)
