Charleston Plantation Tea Original American Classic Tea (100% American)

$14.95

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 Tea, a 100% tea from America's own tea garden. The fresh smooth flavor of American Classic Tea has made it a Southern favorite for many years.

Taste: Unique and harmonious blend of bold tea with smooth pleasant end note

Luxury Ingredients: South Carolina grown black tea

Great for iced tea, too!

This makes fantastic iced tea as well. I've been trying to find an iced tea that comes out clear without much hassle. Lipton, Luzianne, Tetley - all these teas are a bit finicky when trying to brew just right. On occasion if you overbrew you get a cloudy, mucky mess of a tea. And I like my iced tea to be clear as highly polished amber. This one is so hard to mess up. I use four bags in a pyrex measuring cup. I can walk away from it while it's steeping. Somewhere after 6 minutes or so I check on it. Then I pour it over ice. I've tried to take pictures of how it looks, but it's frosting the pitcher so it's hard to tell how nice it looks. I know people might be like, who cares how it looks? But often cloudy tea has a horrible taste to it. Very bitter.

This also tastes great. It has a nice sharp flavor to it without being too much. I found I had to get used to it, the first couple of glasses I was expecting the more mellow taste of more basic iced teas. Once I did get used to the change, I will not go back. This is my new iced tea!
