“We sat under twisting live oak branches heavy with Spanish moss waiting for the bride to arrive.”Lisa L., Bride’s Sister

The Pavilion, nestled in the calm tea fields of our Plantation, can be set up to accommodate a myriad of different events including company meetings, cocktail receptions or afternoon lunches. The front porch of the Plantation Gift Shoppe is also available for cocktail receptions or small dinner parties.

Your guests will be taken aback by the beauty and charm of our scenic grounds as they find themselves surrounded by acres and acres of breathtaking tea plants as far as the eye can see. Events can encompass as much or as little of the Plantation experience as you would like. If desired, you can have your guests learn first-hand how tea is made during our informative Factory Tour or have them take an enjoyable Trolley Ride through the tea fields. Either way, just being on the exclusive grounds of the Charleston Tea Plantation is as experience in its own.
