Charleston Tea Plantation is the home of American Classic Tea, tea grown in America. It is located on Wadmalaw Island in the heart of South Carolina’s Lowcountry. Its grounds include 127 acres of tea plants, a working Tea Factory and a charming Plantation Gift Shoppe. Also available to guests is an adventurous and educational Trolley Tour that explores the scenic grounds that produce American Classic Tea. Did you know that Bigelow Tea owns the Charleston Tea Plantation? In 2003, the Bigelow Family purchased the Charleston Tea Plantation and formed a partnership with former owner William Barclay Hall. The Bigelows realized the value of this living piece of American history and decided that it must be preserved. The Bigelows shared their sixty-five years of knowledge and experience in the specialty tea business with the Plantation and its American Classic brand. Consequently, the Charleston Tea Plantation has transformed into a true American icon and American Classic Teas have continued to prosper as a result of consumers wanting to experience tea grown and produced in America. Today the Charleston Tea Plantation offers more than just a cup of fresh tea. Thanks to the Bigelow Family, the true working tea farm presents a learning experience unlike any other in the country!
