Camellia's Sin Tea Parlor

A gathering of family and friends recently enjoyed afternoon tea at Camellia's Sin Tea Parlor in Carlisle, PA.  Camellia's Sin features a themed menu for the month, and shown here was their Afternoon Tea offered in October.

Hats are available to try on, and many in our group had a hat on at one time or another, including a witch's hat.
The festive place settings quietly waited in anticipation of the tea treats that were yet to arrive.  Assorted pots of hot tea were offered, including Pumpkin, Snowflake, and English Breakfast.

The first course was a choice of soup, a mixed bean soup with bacon or butternut squash.  The bean soup was thick and quite tasty.

A salad of mixed greens topped with apple, cranberries, and blue cheese followed the soup course.  Fresh and delicious.

A three tiered tray laden with a variety of sandwiches was offered.  It featured a nice variety of sandwiches, including a cucumber sandwich, a layered sandwich with carrot and beet fillings, a little ham pastry, and a petite cheesy square.

Last, a second tiered tray held a sumptuous array of desserts.  A seasonal gingerbread cookie with candy corn, a pumpkin cake, and a petite chocolate cake completed the menu.  We lingered and laughed and celebrated friendship all the while enjoying good food and creating wonderful memories.

Thanks so much for sharing your visit to Camellia's Sin Tea Party. [Interesting name! ;-)] Their food looks scrumptious and I LOVE their blue transferware dishes.
