America’s only tea garden is here in Charleston and in celebration of their crop harvest, they’ll be holding the First Flush FesTEAval this weekend.
This is the fifth year the plantation on Wadmalaws Island will open their doors and invite the surrounding community to food vendors, arts and craft and free First Flush Tea, deemed by avid tea drinkers to be the most amazing and unique cup.
But this isn’t just about a caffeinated drink associated with England and early mornings.
There will be ice cold beer for those of age and music all day, starting an hour after the gates open at 11 a.m. The Homegrown Stage will feature just that with A Fragile Tomorrow and The Occasional Milkshake which features Mark Bryan and Gary Greene from Hootie & The Blowfish and Hank Futch of The Blue Dogs.
