CELEBRATING AMERICA'S OWN TEA GARDEN
Dedicated to the commencement of the 2012 crop harvest, the First Flush FesTEAval is a celebration of America's own tea garden and its popular product line, American Classic Tea. The festival name, First Flush, is defined as the growth of new leaves on the tea plants in the spring time after a winter of rest. Their "first flush" of new growth is harvested to produce what avid tea drinkers deem to be the most unique, fresh, and amazing cup of tea. However, the festival is not just about tea! Residents from Charleston and all neighboring towns trek to picturesque Wadmalaw Island to enjoy music, entertainment, art, and local cuisine. Fun for the whole family!
Come experience the beauty and charm of the Charleston Tea Plantation, American's own tea garden! Learn first-hand how tea is made during an informative Factory Tour, and help yourself to all of the FREE iced American Classic First Flush Tea you can drink.
Our 6th annual first flush festeaval on may 20th turned out fantastic! We were all apprehensive about the looming weather reports of tropical depression "alberto", but the weather here on wadmalaw island was absolutely perfect all day for a festival! Everyone who attended seemed to be having a great time listening and dancing to the 6 local bands who entertained us throughout the day with their exceptional musical talents and enjoying local food and arts and crafts. The kids seemed to have the best time of all, sliding down the giant water slide, jumping in the jump castle and on the Spider jump!
