This is the only commercial tea plantation in the U.S. We took the Trolly Tour and it was very informative to see how the tea plants were grown and maintained and how the actual tea leaves were harvested. The tour through the plant showed the processing procedure and gave a greater appreciation of the finished product. In the gift shop, we had complimentary tastings of the 100% First Flush Tea which is the first harvested tea of the season. It was delicious! We purchased a tin of it to enjoy once we returned home. We were glad that we had made the trip to Wadmalaw Island.
There is a charge for the trolley tour but the rest is free.
