America's only tea garden offers tours and gift shop
Come to quiet Wadmalaw Island in the Lowcountry for a visit to America's only tea farm. You can take a trolley tour through the thousands of tea plants (camellia sinesis) and then stop in at the factory to see how the leaves get from the field to your cup! The gift shop is a must with everything from candles to tea pots. Charleston Tea Plantation also holds the First Flush Festival every Spring to celebrate the new harvest season of the tea plants. History Trivia: The "first flush" or first harveset of tea plants has a unique taste and was usually reserved for royalty.
