Sweet Tea Tips From A Pro Tea Taster

It doesn’t get much better than a glass of iced sweet tea on a sunny day.

Sweet tea may not be the official drink of the South – but…well…it’s pretty much the official drink of the South. And when it comes time to pour yourself a glass, you want it to be perfect. To find out what makes a great glass of sweet tea, we took a trip out to the only tea plantation in North America.

Wadmalaw Island, South Carolina is home to the Charleston Tea Plantation. Under the watchful eye of Bill Hall, a tea taster by profession who underwent four years of formal training in London, England, the Charleston Tea Plantation has been harvesting fresh tea leaves since the late 1980s. Lucky for us, Bill shared his tips for brewing the best pitcher of sweet tea you’ll ever have!
