I am a blogger of tea and literature, so even when I am on trips to see family and friends I am constantly thinking of different locations to visit that would introduce me further to the world of sipping and reading. In a trip to see a friend in South Carolina I decided to visit the one and only tea plantation in North America. (I know…I also assumed there were more tea plantations in the States.)
Charleston Tea Plantation, also known as America’s Tea Garden had the southern enchantment of the neighboring historic city of Charleston itself. In this article, I will share with you the features and attractions of the tea plantation coupled with my personal experience.
Charleston Tea Plantation was as stunning as you could imagine a tea plantation would be. The beautiful 127-acre plantation sits on Wadamalaw Island in the heart of the Low-country of South Carolina, just a few miles south of the historic city of Charleston.
Wadamalaw Island has not and cannot be commercially developed, therefore much of the land remains untouched. The tea plantation is no exception. A fun fact I learned made me fall in love with the plantation that much more! Charleston Tea Plantation was born in the same year as I, 1987!
My friend and I walked the grounds of the tea plantation and ate lunch under a perfect gazebo before starting our ventures. I was with full peace surrounded by tea and the natural beauty of Wadamalaw.
