Preserving Civility, Hospitality And Health
Through The Art Of Taking Tea 

Carolina Parakeet takes its name from the now extinct bird that was North America's only native parakeet.

It serves as our reminder for preservation.

Our mission is to offer tea instruction and high quality products to our customers that will assist them in preserving a lifestyle of civility, hospitality and health.

These things have been associated with tea for many centuries and in many cultures.



Like many other businesses, Carolina Parakeet Tea & Gifts temporarily closed in March in response to Covid.  While we have continued to serve our customers through our on-line order process and porch pick-up, we are excited to announce that we will re-open on Saturday, October 10.  Our new opening schedule will then be Thursday - Friday 10:00AM- 6:00PM and Saturday 10:00AM - 4:00PM.  We will be observing the usual Covid precautions; limiting guests inside the store to two at a time and requesting that guests wear a mask.  We look forward to seeing you again!

Those who found the on-line order and pick-up service convenient will be happy to know that it will continue.  Place your order by Thursday at 4:00PM and we will have it ready for you to pick-up anytime during our hours of operation on Friday.  Upon arrival at the tea shop, call 864-221-0704 to let me know you have arrived and I will bring the order out and place it on the table on the porch.  If you wish, you may also opt to come in to pick it up.
