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

CAMELLIA'S "SECRET RECIPE" SCONE MIXES
Plain Scone Mix $8.95
ALL OTHER VARIETIES $10.95
(all packaged scones include enough mix for 8 to 12 scones
just add the wet ingredients as listed on the back of the package; any fruits and or nuts can be added to the dry ingredients. BE CREATIVE! And please if you have a recipe you want to share we would love to hear from you.)
ALMOND JOY (a popular choice for tearoom customers includes chocolate chips, almonds, and coconut
MIXED BERRY (dried cherries, blueberries and cranberries very nice summer choice)
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!
CINNAMON PECAN RAISIN (our basic scone recipe with added cinnamon, pecans, and raisins - a great breakfast scone)
CRANBERRY ORANGE a favorite during the fall and holiday season for sure but I love them anytime of year)
LAVENDER - our signature scone (a subtle blend of organic lavender flowers makes this a tearoom favorite....Lemon and Lavender pair quite well so a Tbs of fresh lemon zest in the dry mix brings out the lavender even more. I also like to top this scone with a lemon glaze).
SULTANA SCONE MIX - "SULTANA" has it's roots in Irish and British traditions and "Sultana" is their word for "raisin" - this scone is filled with plump golden raisins
ROSEMARY CHEDDAR - our savory scone and hands down one of the most requested...just add the organic rosemary sprigs that come with the mix to the dry ingredients and then add freshly grated cheddar; goes great with any meal. This recipe is somewhat different than our sweet scone recipe as it does not call for as much sugar.
