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.

The idea of tea arriving at my door step through a subscription service has always been exciting. Recently I had something almost more exciting come to my door….a chocolate subscription box! Similar to a tea subscription, this box arrived with a selection of chocolate bars from makers all over the world to discover. I was gifted a Kekao Boxand it blew me away! My box consisted of 5 premium specialty crafted dark chocolate bars and I immediately had to steep some teas and get pairing. Chocolate and tea pairings allow you to experience more flavours from both. For best results, using both high quality tea and high quality chocolate is recommended. Luckily, that was all I found in the Kekao monthly chocolate box.
