Description

Attention tea connoisseurs! This is the only working tea plantation in the United States, and you can come visit to learn about tea harvesting, processing and packaging. The plantation supplies the official tea of the White House and grows over 300 varieties of tea on its 127 acres (51 hectares).  The tour of the factory is free, and will teach you all about how the teas are made. Or you can pay a little extra for the trolley tour, which drives you all around the massive and beautiful plantation. If you are visiting during the summer, make sure to wear a hat or take an umbrella, as the summer sun is intense.
