About South Carolina, United States

South Carolina is a coastal state in the southeastern United States, and is the location of one of the few commercial tea operations in the continental U.S.

South Carolina has a humid subtropical climate, and the coastal areas have a seasonal pattern of precipitation, with more rainfall in the summer, much like the pattern of the Asian monsoon. This creates a climate zone quite similar to many of the major tea growing regions of China, particularly Fujian and Zhejiang provinces. In contrast to these regions, which have rocky coastlines, South Carolina has a very flat coastal plain. Much of the region is swampy.
