Over 100 years ago, tea planters brought their finest ancestral tea bushes from China and India to Wadmalaw Island near the historic old city of Charleston, South Carolina. Now the direct descendants of these very plants have been lovingly restored to their former grandeur here at the Charleston Tea Plantation, a lush subtropical tea farm. It is in this context of great natural beauty and colonial pride that we bring you American Classic First Flush® Tea made from 100% tea grown at America’s own tea garden. Produced from the leaf that is the plants’ “first flush” of new growth for the season, First Flush Tea is the absolute purest, freshest and most amazing cup of tea available! It has a unique and more defined taste that encompasses a smooth and mellow flavor. First Flush is only available once a growing season and will only be offered for a limited time!
