Dedicated to the commencement of the crop harvest, the First Flush FesTEAval is a celebration of America's ONLY tea garden and its popular product line, American Classic Tea. The festival name, First Flush, is defined as the escalated 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! Locals have deemed it an "island celebration." Residents from Charleston and all neighboring towns trek to picturesque Wadmalaw Island to enjoy music, entertainment, art, and local cuisine. It is undoubtedly an event for all ages...Fun for the whole family!
Tickets for the First Flush FesTEAval will soon go on sale at the Plantation Gift Shop and online at www.etix.com. Tickets will also be available on the day of the event at the Plantation entrance. For more details regarding the First Flush Festival, please call 843-559-0383.
