The Charleston Tea Plantation is located on historic Wadmalaw Island in the heart of the Lowcountry of South Carolina.  Home to The Charleston Tea Plantation, Wadmalaw provides the perfect environment for propagating tea. With its sandy soils, sub-tropical climate and average rainfall of 52 inches per year, Wadmalaw possesses idyllic conditions for the Camellia Sinensis tea plant. This plant is currently used to produce both black and green teas and exists in over 320 varieties on the 127 acre grounds of the Charleston Tea Plantation.  They do NOT use any pesticides (herbicides, fungicides and insecticides)!

This is the home of Charleston Tea Plantation teas - nine very special flavors of tea, including our original American Classic Tea. This is the only brand of tea in the world that is made exclusively with 100% tea grown in America.  The Charleston Tea Plantation, America's own tea garden, is pleased to offer our group an experience that is not only educational but more importantly one-of-a-kind.  After the factory and garden trolley tour, you will receive a lunch to be enjoyed onsite.

Before returning back to the hotel, you will stop at the Angel Oak Tree on John's Island. The tree is estimated to be 400-500 years old. It stands 66.5 ft (20 m) tall, measures 28 ft (8.5 m) in circumference, and produces shade that covers 17,200 square feet. Its longest branch distance is 187 ft in length.  Angel Oak was the 210th tree to be registered with the Live Oak Society.
