Green tea, island style

Because of the tea plant's climate needs, there aren't many tea farms in North America. In fact, the Charleston Tea Plantation bills itself as "America's only tea garden."

The folks on Wadmalaw Island, SC, will have to change their sign, though, because a new tea garden has opened up on the Big Island of Hawaii.
