Charleston Tea Plantation

on our way back from the beach a few weeks ago, Thomas took me to the Charleston Tea Plantation! it is cool because it's the only tea plantation in North America! the next closest tea plantation is in Argentina! you can see the fields of the tea plants & take a factory tour to see how it is processed! they explained the differences of how black tea, green tea, and oolong tea is made and it was interesting! 

you can also have unlimited samples of different hot teas & iced teas in the gift shop! so that was yummy! the plantation itself is also gorgeous because of the massive oak trees and moss! we had a fun time looking around the gift shop, tasting the tea, and walking around the plantation! we also got to visit the world's largest sweet tea! haha! and I love the sign showing the next closest tea plantations around the world! so neat! it is also right down the road from the Angel Oak which is a 60 foot tree that is estimated to be about 400-500 years old! so, we had to stop by there while we were so close!
