We are converting our small urban lot into a food forest, and have an existing 12' abundant and flourishing camellia tree (camellia japonica) that we would like to retain and utilize as part of a guild.  I have been making delicious tea out of the leaves for use in my homemade kombucha.

Looking for suggestions on types of plants to add around it to develop the guild.  Possibly other plants for tea or pollination? 

It is in a very sunny and well drained location, in Seattle (zone 8a).

My instant first thought is that blueberries and camellia's have similar soil needs. So maybe this thread will have relevant information https://permies.com/t/14249/guild-ideas-blueberries
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://richsoil.com/cards
