Artist's Description

The Charleston South Carolina Tea Plantation is the only large commercial tea production farm in America. It is located on Wadmalaw Island in the heart of South Carolina’s Lowcountry. The 127 acre farm is operated with five employees. They invented their own machine to harvest the tea which is operated by one person. It is a cross between a cotton picker and a grain combine. The tea bushes are about four feet tall and the tea harvester drives through the rows of tea bushes cutting only the top three inches of new growth leaves and sucking them into a large metal basket. The tea processing facility is a fully mechanical operation requiring only one person to operate. A similar farm in Asia would employ around 100 workers. The tea can be bought at most Sam’s stores in the US under the brand name of American Classic Teas
