Each Spring Mother Nature awakens the Tea Plants and another growing season begins. The Lowcountry provides just the right mix of heat, rain and sun for tiny, tender tea leaves to push up above last year’s growth. This “First Flush”” is Nature’s very special gift to Charleston Tea Plantation – America’s Only Tea Garden.
With a taste all its own, American Classic Tea’s First Flush is a once-a-year Special Edition Tea available in very limited quantities. This year we are going to celebrate our First Flush with a Festival at the Plantation on May 12, 2007. Bring a blanket or chair and come celebrate with us for a full day of fun, food, live music, games, relaxation and friendship.
Observe the process of making tea in our factory from the “Tourway” where you’ll hear and see all about the world of tea. Visit the Gift Shoppe for unique merchandise and take home a supply of American Classic Tea. Take the narrated bus tour through the farm for unforgettable views. Purchase your own supply of the 2007 American Classic First Flush Tea for those special moments when only the best will do. It’s all part of the First Flush Festival at Charleston Tea Plantation.

Established in 2005, International Tea Day brings awareness to the tea workers’ contributions to the tea world and their working conditions. It has been observed annually on December 15. However, starting in 2020 it will take place on May 21. But, how exactly should one recognize it? Well, if you’re a business owner I would steer away from using this day as just another marketing opportunity. As someone in the marketing industry, I wanted to offer some other options that businesses, tea related or not, can take into consideration if they would like to honour International Tea Day.
I’ve been updating a spreadsheet on pu’erh prices on release for the past few years in order to get an idea of tea being offered to western consumers and any possible trends. The well-known popular narrative is that fresh pu’erh prices have gone up and this certainly seems true in the data. Last year the prices looked about the same as the previous year. And when and how much the price has gone up depends on how we look at this and there’s a handful of different ways to look at the data and options available (I do three here).
