First of the SC tea harvest celebrated

May 16, 2010 8:40:00 AM - thestate.com
They're celebrating the first of the tea harvest at a coastal South Carolina tea plantation.

The Charleston Tea Plantation on Sunday hosts its annual First Flush Festival at the plantation that grows tea for American Classic.

The festival on Wadmalaw Island includes a variety of music including gospel, blues and rock n' roll. There is also locally crafted beer, wine from a local vineyard and, of course, tea.

One of the performers is Mark Bryan, guitarist and songwriter for South Carolina's Hootie and the Blowfish.

First flush means the first new growth harvested from tea plants after the winter. Many tea drinkers say it's the freshest kind of tea.
