Take a Day Trip to the Charleston Tea Plantation

A drive across rural, moss-draped Wadmalaw Island is a worthy pursuit, made even more memorable by a visit to the 127-acre farm that produces American Classic Tea. Tour options include a trolley ride around the grounds and a full view of the production facility through a glassed-in (and air-conditioned) observation hall. Of course, leave time to sit outside under a live oak and sip a warm cup (or cool glass) of tea, directly from the source.
