October marks Carolina Parakeet’s 5th year in our brick and mortar location.  Prior to the opening in 2017, we were an online only business.  The most wonderful thing about opening a brick and mortar location is meeting you, our fellow tea enthusiasts; hearing about your tea journeys and sharing ours.  So we want to celebrate this occasion with you!  After all, it is your support that has made it possible!  With five years under our belt and five Saturdays in October, we thought it fitting to have an event on each of those Saturdays!  Here is what we have planned so far:

November 10, 2022 5pm-9pm Open House Holiday Tea Lights
