Went to Camilla's today for the first time...we were not disappointed, what a wonderful tea room! There were 8 or 9 teas to choose from (and we tried 3 of them)...food was excellent, and the service top notch; cheerful, nice and so attentive! Looking forward to returning!!

This was a wonderful experience for my family and I. The food and tea was excellent and I cannot stop raving about it. I plan on going there again for the Christmas season and am excited to try their holiday flavors. It was a very cute and happy experience that was relaxing. Love this place!

I can not say enough good things about Camellia's Sin! I have been going there since shortly after it opened in Dec 2005 and now travel 2 hours by car to get there for the amazing food, tea, and great experience. The service is always excellent and the food divine! Even foods I think I may not like turn out to be delicious and devoured quickly. The tea Parlor provides a selection of hats to wear to have a fun tea time and the table settings are beautiful, with each table having a different color/theme. Each month the menu changes, but it is always delicious. Changes can be made for special diets when you call ahead for reservations. The selection of teas is fairly extensive--loose leaf tea from Harney and Sons that include traditional choices like Earl Gray and English Breakfast as well as... (more)

Can't say enough wonderful things about Camellia's Sin Tea Parlor. From the stellar service to their extensive tea selection to their delicious and abundant menu choices, everything was superb. We had 2 delicious teas, curried pumpkin soup, 3 different scones and delectable sandwiches and sweets. We were so full, we took our desserts home as well as extra scones that we were able to buy. I've been to many tea houses, and Camellia's ranks in my top 5. Well worth the trip to Carlisle, PA. They also have an excellent gift shop too.

Belladonna Red Hat Group attended tea at Camellia's earlier this week. We began our day with a bundle event where we enjoyed the salt cave at a local wellness center in the morning, (which Lyn, the owner of Camellias helped to coordinate); then to Camellias for lunch & tea. Lovely place, friendly staff. It was a brisk fall day outside so the squash soup was an immediate hit! The salad,scones, & finger sandwiches were all equally delicious. We also enjoyed a pumpkin tea in keeping with the fall theme, as well as a snowflake black tea as we thought ahead to winter. We chose an English garden tea to accompany our dessert. The atmosphere was casually elegant, the accompanying gift shop a shoppers delight! I believe each of the members in our group purchased something we could not live without. Highly recommend Camellias Sin Tea Parlor.

This was another wonderful tea experience with 13 friends. The food was delicious. Who would have thought that Afician Peanut Soup could be so good. The atmosphere is great, table setting lovely. The owner is friendly and informative. Needless to say that this is one of my favorite tea rooms.

Had a very nice tea today with my friend. We got to sit out on the patio and soak in the beautiful weather while enjoying our afternoon tea consisting of...

GARDEN TOMATO AND BASIL SOUP
CINNAMON PECAN SCONE
FRESH LEMON CURD AND DEVONSHIRE CREAM
CARMELIZED ONION AND LEEK TART
OLIVE NUT ON SWEET BREAD
HUMMUS STACKS W/ENGLISH CUCUMBER
FRESH TURKEY BREAST IN HERB MUFFIN
ALMOND SHORTBREAD COOKIES
CHOCOLATE CARAMEL CUPCAKES
APPLE CRUMB BARS

Along with two pots of Fall Tea and one pot of Orange Mousse Rooibos Tea.

If you are ever in Carlisle, PA stop in at Camellias Sin Tea House (Camellia Sinensis is the botanical name for the tea plant; hence, Canellia's Sin). Reservations encouraged.

You won't be disappointed.

School starts on Monday and tea today was the best way to end the summer vacation. The menu was scrumptious and the atmosphere lovely. My dear friend and I had a delightful time as always. Thanks for the wonderful tea experience.

After many years of enjoying teas for Mother's Day and other occasions, we recently had my daughter's bridal shower at Camellia's Sin, and it was truly a delightful experience. Tea selections included some old favorites as well as a new blend that was delicious! This was a perfect place for a shower - everyone got to enjoy a wonderful tea experience with delicious food as part of a memorable life event. We are hoping to return for a leisurely afternoon tea in August!

My three young granddaughters and I had a wonderful time sipping tea in our big fancy hats. Another time, my friend and I enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the excellent service. The tea was delicious and the food was out of this world! A very special place far away from the fast-food, junk-food world today.

While planning a trip to the area, we found Camellia's Sin Tea Parlor on TeaMap and made reservations. Although my husband and I arrived early, our hostess/server Kara received us graciously and seated us promptly. The many varieties of loose tea available were described and we enjoyed tasting different new choices-my husband liked 'Paris' and I really loved 'Pineapple Upside Down Cake.' Our food was beautifully presented and delicious. While allowing us our privacy, still Kara was attentive to our needs with friendly conversation. We felt like we were old friends! We have enjoyed tea at many tearooms in the United States; Camellia's Sin ranks as one of our very favorites! We will return whenever we are in the vicinity.

This is the 2nd year my daughter's treated me to the Mother's Day Tea at Camilla's Sin Tea House. Some of the BEST food I've even eaten Will make sure we're back again in 2014. Great job done by the staff at the Tea House! Will recommend to all my friends.

Everything about my daughter's shower was professionally handled. Lin was so agreeable with last minute changes, and she did a great job at greeting the guests and making them feel welcome. The food was absolutely delicious, and the selection of teas was very enjoyable. I would recommend Camellia's Sin Tea Parlor to anyone. Thank you. Kathy

I shared a beautiful spring afternoon with good friends. We sat outside and enjoyed a nice variety of teas and exceptionally good food. It was delightful.

My best friend and our daughters shared a wonderful afternoon at the tea parlor. The weather was perfect for enjoying the patio. The food was delicious and presented so beautifully. We enjoyed several teas from the long list, but our favorite was Pineapple Upside down cake. We were the last table served that day, but we didn't feel rushed. Lin and her servers are so friendly and helpful. I have been to other tea shops, but this is one that shouldn't be missed!
