Charleston Tea Plantation

Welcome to the Charleston Tea Plantation!  For tea lovers, we promise a once in a lifetime experience.  You can see hundreds of thousands of tea bushes stretching out acre after acre for almost as far as the eye can see.  

In addition to our many acres of tea plants, we offer a very educational tour of our tea factory.  You get to walk the entire length of our tea production building where you can see all the equipment it takes to make tea.  Large TV screens along the glassed in gallery describe the entire process.  As mentioned, we also offer a 45 minute trolley ride, which makes a stop at our state of the art greenhouse.  Last but not least is our gift shop, stocked with more tea related items than you can possibly imagine.  Last year some sixty five thousand people from all over the world came to visit us.  We’d love to have you be one of them this coming year.
