What is the relationship between the Charleston Tea Plantation, American Classic Tea and Bigelow Tea?
In 2003, the Bigelow Family purchased the Charleston Tea
Plantation and formed a partnership with former owner William
Barclay Hall. The Bigelow's brought sixty-five years of
experience in the specialty tea business to the Plantation and the
American Classic brand. Since 2003 the Charleston
Tea Plantation has transformed into a true American icon.
American Classic Tea has maintained its faithful fans
since its start in the late 1980's and has continued to prosper as
a result of consumers wanting to experience the ONLY tea grown and
produced in America. Today the Charleston Tea Plantation
offers more than just a cup of fresh tea. Thanks to the
Bigelow Family, the true working tea farm presents a learning
experience unlike any other in the country.
