All American Tea

10:00a to 12:00p
Sun, July 03, 2022
(915) 444-9100

Enjoy drinking iced tea in the summer? Learn about some native plants you can add to your steeping rotation!

Sweet iced tea may be iconic of Southern hospitality today, but the history of tea in America extends long before Europeans ever stepped foot on this continent with their imported Camellia leaves. 

Drop by the Interpretive building to learn more about the amazing plants that have been quenching thirst for thousands of years. 

Fee: no cost for this program, but we encourage you to get an entrance permit and explore the park while you are out here! 


From Westside on I-10, take exit 6 & travel east towards mountains for 3.8 miles. Park entrance will be on the left. 

From Eastside on Hwy 54, take exit 29 towards Transmountain Rd, travel west 7-7.5 miles through the mountains. Park entrance will be on the right.

If using a GPS be sure to search for "2900 Tom Mays Access Road," not "Franklin Mountains State Park."
