A trip to Charleston, SC last fall led me to the Charleston Tea Plantation and this tasty black tea. A large quantity of the tea leaves harvested on this plantation are shipped offsite to Bigelow for packaging. However, the Governor Gray is an exception This tea is processed on site, and placed in cans for retail sale.
Though the tea plantation is off the beaten path, tourists find the location. The fields are directly across the road from the processing plant, where waist-high plants look toward the southern sun. A self-guided walking tour through the processing plant is available for tourists.
And – the best part of the tour is the aroma – - -
The smell of a fresh brewed cup of tea consumes your senses immediately inside the front door.
As you can see, my tin is nearing empty. I can order here.
