This is the only tea plantation in the U.S. As such, we were eager to see it. It's a pretty drive out to this plantation. The gift shoppe is nice and the staff very pleasant. The only charge is for the trolley tour of the plantation, which is the reason for going there. The trolley is an antique acquired by the owner and open air or covered. The driver was informative. We enjoyed the tour and would like to see it when the flowers bloom in the fall.
