We made the trip out to the tea plantation when we left from our Charleston vacation on the way home -- not sure if it was going to be worth the time. What a nice treat! The tour and trolley ride of the field were very informative, got to see the new greenhouse, sample hot & cold teas. The factory itself was not in operation at the time we were there, but all the processes were thoroughly explained. Delightful gift shop and tasting area. Very friendly staff. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Also got maps and got to see the Angel Oak which is very nearby. There is a fee for the trolley ride, but no fee for the factory tour.
