A while back I wrote about tea production in the United States and England, a pretty marginal activity in both countries. One of the few places in the U.S. where tea is grown is at South Carolina's Charleston Tea Plantation. The tea produced there is marketed on a small scale as American Classic Tea.
Because of it's unique nature, the plantation gets some attention every now and then from newspaper travel writer types. The most recent profile appears in the Charlotte Observer. Read the article here and, if you ever get a chance, drink American.
