From Charleston Tea Plantation

Over 100 years ago, tea planters brought their finest ancestral tea bushes from China and India to Wadmalaw Island near the historic old city of Charleston, South Carolina. Now the direct descendants of these very plants have been lovingly restored to their former grandeur here at the Charleston Tea Plantation, a lush subtropical tea farm. It is in this context of great natural beauty and colonial pride that we bring you American Classic First Flush® Tea made from 100% tea grown at America’s own tea garden. Produced from the leaf that is the plants’ “first flush” of new growth for the season, First Flush Tea is the absolute purest, freshest and most amazing cup of tea available! It has a unique and more defined taste that encompasses a smooth and mellow flavor. First Flush is only available once a growing season and will only be offered for a limited time!

I haven’t had this tea since last semester. This time I only used one teaspoon for my cup. I’m not quite sure how much I was supposed to use, so this is a guess.

The liquid is a nice amber. It smells like damp earth. It isn’t unpleasant to drink. It tastes toasty and roasty. It also tastes a little bit like wood and slightly dries out my mouth. It tastes nice, but I’m not sure if I actually care for it or not. Nothing really jumps out at me. Of course, this could be that she has had this tin of tea for a long period of time and it is still mostly full.

So, it is a nice cup of tea, but not something I would drink most of the time. It is kinda “meh”. The more I sip it, the more it doesn’t really taste like much.

Meg, one teaspoon is correct….the flavor will weaken over time. Drinking within 1-2 years from when product was purchased, would be our recommendation for the best overall flavor profile for this particular tea….thanks so much for your review….it was a pleasure to read and we really appreciate your comments

MegWesley is my roommate, so we tried this tea together today. I found that it had a very vegetative taste to it, but it was nonetheless a very drinkable and enjoyable tea. It was certainly one of the more interesting teas I’ve tried and I’ll have to try more… when I’m in the right mood for it.
