This is our second visit to Charleston and we visited the Tea Plantation--it is free, plus we didn't have a tight schedule, so we decided to "fit this in". It is located a bit "out of the way" of the other populated tourist attractions, but it's a nice stroll if you have the time. It's a vast plantation and looks like a bunch of bushes everywhere--like a vast field. There is a large building which is the store which has the free tour as well as the free teas to sample. The tour is interesting. It's narrated by a recording as you walk from one TV to another as they explain the tea factory. You are standing the entire time. It's interesting to learn about how they make tea from the leaves in the fields. Our family loves tea and we drink it almost everyday. I think their tea is decent but I must say that the absolute BEST tea is the tea you can get from an Oriental store and Asian tea. They've mastered the tea-making process after centuries of experience and the taste is just so much better IMHO!
