Spring O’clock Tea – Fashion, Style and… Tea

Spring has sent us a welcome smile last week but winter seems to make an angry come back, with chili wind, freezing temperatures and bad cold. My response? I cuddle up with a blanket covering my shoulders and I drink warm tea and wish that my family and friends stay healthy! The tulips’ bloom revive my mood, giving me another glimpse of Spring in the middle of the winter. The kettle on the stove reminds me that all I need right now is just a cup of tea. As I pour the tea in the cup I remember these lyrics and I feel inspired to write about the history of the tea in the South.

“If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.”
by William Ewart Gladstone

Tea was grown for the first time in the States in South Carolina, making it the state’s official hospitality beverage.
Charleston Tea Plantation is the tea heart of South Carolina and the home of the American Classic Tea. Interestingly enough, the Charleston’s Wadmalaw Island is an idyllic land with sandy soils and subtropical climate where the Camellia Sinensis is the queen plant producing both black and green teas for our delight.

The First Flush Tea is the purest, freshest, and most amazing cup of tea and is made from the new leaves of tea plants collected in Spring. Walking through the tea fields while drinking a cup of fresh tea is an amazing and one-of-a- kind experience. Are you ready to join me on a tea trip where fashion, style, and tea go hand in hand?
