Russians Love Their Tea and Their Samovar’s…

The Samovar…

It is any Russian’s best friend. No, not a person… but in the past that’s how the Russians treated their samovar. It had a place of honor at the table… and in many homes it still does.

“Tea from a samovar tastes much better than tea from an electric kettle,” said samovar enthusiast Konstantin Ziskin, “It smells of smoke, fresh wood and pine cones!”

Literally a self-boiler, a samovar has traditionally been used to heat water for tea… And that’s how it’s done the old way… Water from the well… wood chips… and a lot of huffing and puffing make up the recipe for a perfect tea time.
