American Classic Tea
by Martha from Fairburn on 11/30/2017 12:07:39 AM
I began drinking this tea after completing walking tours at the Hostess' home about 25+ years ago. The elegance of this fine-tasting tea cannot be compared with other teas that I've had in the past. It's a smooth tasting tea and also good as a hot tea. Its' delicate flavor is a true identification of what the OLD SOUTH is all about.
The Best

I began drinking your tea after being served some in Charleston 10 years ago. I've been a faithful fan ever since! The flavor is excellent both hot and iced. Love it 😍

Excellent to make the best Ice Tea ever. We have been using this tea for over 15 years and have had numerous compliments from guest at our parties. Not bitter and stays fresh in refrigerator for over a week.
Absolutely the Best

Recently, we moved from Wadmalaw Island to Colorado. One thing that had to go with us (besides grits) was many boxes of Charleston Tea. Absolutely the best. I'm placing an order now because I'm on my last box. We continue to recommend the tour to people visiting Charleston.
Years of satisfied taste buds

My family and I have been drinking Charleston tea for years and at times can't find it in stores so I just buy it online. This is most definitely the best tea ever. I have been drinking tea my whole life and this is by far the best.
My Favorite Tea
by Jamie from Hot Springs, AR on 5/17/2016 10:07:26 AM
This is my favorite tea, hot or cold. Our whole family LOVES this tea!! I drink it in the morning, hot with a bit of Stevia and half & half. Divine!! We make iced tea in a glass pitcher, unsweetened... yum, yum, YUMMY!! Love buying it by the case too because I don't have to reorder very often. Thanks bunches!!
Love this Tea! Yay, 'Merica!

Love American Classic Tea! Reason #1 why I buy it? It's grown in America. I have read some real scary stories about food grown in China, and their harsh pesticides. Since most of the tea on the shelves in our stores comes from Asia, it makes me want to purchase from the greatest nation on earth- Ours!! As a bonus, it supports our economy, not theirs. But besides all that, this tea is delicious! Makes the absolute BEST iced tea, and I drink it by the gallons. This is the only place you can get American-grown tea, and I'm a customer for life! :-)
Not the Same as other Charleston Tea Plantation Products
by John from Sacramento, CA on 1/8/2016 5:33:27 PM
I bought this tea with the assumption that it was of the same quality as other Charleston Tea Plantation Products, I was thoroughly disappointed. It has no taste or scent of tea. I would not recommend this to anyone. It is too bad that Bigelow bought the Charleston Tea Plantation, converting it to a tourist attraction rather than a true tea farm. It is peculiar to me that this tea is only offered on the Bigelow website and not on the Charleston Tea Plantation one. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
Confession of a Tea Addict
by Nancy from West Sacramento on 10/8/2014 2:08:21 PM
American Classic Tea: Love this tea! Nothing finer nor better-tasting than this tea -- a classic from the old South -- reasonably-priced, smooth, black, full of flavor yet mild. I've been drinking tea since I was a teenager, and am a complete addict (no coffee necessary). I discovered this tea while visiting the Charleston Tea Plantation in South Carolina five years ago, and bought some in their gift shop to take home, and continue to drink it via ordering online five years later. Love this tea! Now I know why our forefather's fought over it :)
