Sweet and savory aromatic infusions and delicacies are an intrinsic part of the Welsh tradition that took root on the sea side. The tea houses in Gaiman are one of the attractions of the small town located in the lower valley of the Chubut River. Porcelain teapots dressed in crochet invite you to enjoy tea in strands, thick and dark, with variations of flavors.
The tea ceremony took root in the Welsh colony as an attraction for tourists and visitors. The stories spell any traveler who wants to know how these intrepid travelers arrived. Coming from the distant Celtic country, looking for a place where they could root their culture, the first Welsh anchored in the waters of the New Gulf around 1865 and gave rise to villages in Chubut as Trelew a >, Rawson and Gaiman .
The village seems stopped in time with its manicured gardens and streets with ditches. To visit it is to enter a world surrounded by trees that are rarely seen in the rest of Patagonia Chubutense, very different from the inhospitable and arid land found by the first immigrants.
