Currently I am in Florida taking a mini break and enjoying the warm weather. While here a friend of mine referred me to a small quaint little town called Stuart, FL. Stuart is on the east coast nestled between Orlando and West Palm beach. It has a really cute historic downtown that is right on the inlet. While wandering the downtown I came upon this darling spice shop. The shop is called “All Spiced up.” It is owned by a lovely woman named Ana. As I perused the delicious smelling spices I was pleasantly surprised to find that Ana also carries tea in her shop. Not only does she carry Elmwood Inn Fine Teas but she also carries tea from the Charleston Tea Plantation. Did you know the US has a tea plantation? I have heard the urban legend but never actually encountered the teas. So you can imagine my surprise when I saw them at this wonderful shop! I immediately purchased a tin of “Plantation Peach.”
As I sit here writing, I’m sipping a cold, refreshing glass of peach tea and it is fabulous! I can close my eyes and fantasize that I am a true Southern belle sipping tea on a wrap around porch of a grand olde Plantation!
I cannot wait to plan a visit to Charleston Tea Plantation!
If ever in Stuart, FL be sure to drop by and say “hello” to Ana!
