When we returned to Guatemala a few years ago, we wanted to go to Cobán, mainly because there´s another coffee producing area we wanted to visit. When we found out that a cooperative nearby was operating the only tea plantation in America, we just needed to go and have a look! Although the weather wasn´t exactly brilliant (understatement), we enjoyed a wonderful visit : we were shown round the plantation where the camellia sinensis plants grow in a hilly and tropical environment, and had a cuppa afterwards, of course. I brought some tea home as well.
It might well be that the growing conditions (amid coffee and fruit trees) result in a sweeter black tea which might explain the recommended use as a cold brew as well. I prefer to take it hot, as a really enjoyable afternoon tea. However, as one of my nephews is a huge fan of icetea&co, I should try to serve him this tea cold w/o added sugar. Anyway, it´s great to know the history and to have met some of the people producing the tea I´m drinking!
