I don't know why this is listed as an "Amusement Park"--it's anything but.

The Charleston Tea Plantation (or "gerden"??) is the only operational tea plantation in the US. It produces "American Classic Tea" which can be purchased both at the plantation itself, or at any local grocery store in the area.

The tour is FREE, which should be all the reason you need to hop in the car and drive out to the boonies. You see how the tea is grown and how it is processed to go from green, living leaf on a tree to being the dried brown leaves you make tea out of.

At the end of the tour, you can sample all-u-can-drink varieties of tea and I believe they had snacks there as well.

Majority (if not all) of the tour is outdoors, so be prepared if you go during sweltering summers.

PROS: !!! FREE !!!
CONS:

The Tea Plantation is out on Wadmalaw Island, which isn't too long of a drive from Charleston.

This is the only tea plantation in the US, and that makes it neat, and even neater is the fact that the tour is FREE FREE FREE!!! So you can't beat that deal with a stick.

I went in the summertime, and the tour was held outside. YOu can see the rows and rows ot tea plants and the tour guide gives you a lesson on how tea is grown and turned into the little baggies that you buy in the store (The planation makes American Classic Tea which you can buy all over the place in SC). Very interesting. The official tea tasters have to go through years of training and can actually tell you, just by one sip, where the tea was grown, in what region of that country, and what blend of tea leaves were used. PRETTY NEAT!

At the end you get snacks and all-u-can-drink sun tea.

It's very informative and interesting!
