Charleston Tea Plantation Tour
Tea (after the Revolution) is so easily come by that we take it for granted. But there is an entire process behind your favorite beverage - from the time the bush is harvested to the time your boiling water hits those leaves in your porcelain cup. Taking this tour you get to see this elaborate method which is what famed tea-makers Bigelow use to bring their high-quality product to your neighborhood store. Admission costs $10 per person which includes a trolley ride around the grounds and plantation and plenty of samples in the gift shop. You can also take the free self-guided tour but call ahead for the schedule.
