Many of you have seen me thru great joy and sadness, grief,and healing, you providing love and support thru it all. Thank you!!!! As many of you know, Jan. 1, 2013, I committed my heart to a wonderful man, Jim and will be concentrating on creating a new life with him . Patricia will be concentrating on her health so she can pursue new dreams.

About the Owners:
Charlynn Long, fondly known as “Ms. Lynn”, was raised in rural Northern California. Growing up on a farm, she learned the lessons of hard work and appreciation for God’s second book: nature. Taking the love of beauty, nature, good food, entertaining and the serenity of tea time, she has culminated all into fulfilling a long time dream. Opening Ms. Lynn’s Tea in July of 2003 in rural Montague, California she has provided a unique respite for ladies and gentlemen of all ages. “We provide you a place in time that makes you forget what’s outside these walls and reconnect with each other.”
Patricia Falkenhagen was raised a “Navy Brat” with her four siblings and experienced the Best of the West, living in Hawaii, Oregon, California, and Nevada. Her younger years were spent raising her four children and foster children, while also volunteering in the schools, fundraising ,and couching. Being the Vice President of the Roseburg American Diabetes Association sparked the interest of nutrition and added ways to nurture other people. When her children got older, she started interior design work on the Oregon Coast and found her niche and love for antiques and anything Victorian. She and her husband Nick moved to Siskiyou County in 1999 and bought the house of her dreams and decorated in all that she loves. When her last child left the nest, her neighbor thought she needed something to do and referred her to the tearoom in 2006… and the rest is history! This year Patricia became a partner in the tearoom, and is excited about making your tea experience a time to remember, as the tearoom makes memories for life. She invites you to come and join her for her new adventure in the tearoom.
