The Charleston Tea Plantation all began in the 1700′s. Nearly over the next 150 years there were attempts to produce tea for consumption, however there was no success. It wasn;t until Dr. Charles Shepard came along in 1888. Up until his death 45 years later, tea plants grew wild. In later years, William Barclay Hall, purchased the land. He was a tea tester during a 4 year apprenticeship in London, with much experience. With Hall around the Charleston Tea Plantation became home of American Classic Tea, 100% grown in America.
