Tea in South Carolina

Americans have been trying to grow their own Camellia sinensis for centuries, but so far, our most successful attempt is on Wadmalaw Island in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.

While the Dutch first brought tea to North America (remember when New York was called New Amsterdam?), it was the English who discovered and claimed most of the coastal areas of the southern states.

Once tea plants were available, South Carolina was the obvious choice for a plantation. Still, most attempts failed.

Then, in 1888, Dr. Charles Shephard started the Summerville Pinehurst Tea Plantation which was productive for almost 30 years until his death.

In 1963, the Charleston Tea Plantation purchased a farm on Wadmalaw Island and moved the surviving plants from the Pinehurst Plantation to the new location.

In 2003, this land with the historic American tea plants was purchased by the Bigelow Family who increased the selections and flavors (try American Classic Island Green Loose Tea) for what is currently the only tea grown in America.
