  • About


The Russians are great tea drinkers, but their method of making tea does not differ from that of other countries. The favourite tea is China tea, and the samovar is the urn in which the hot water is kept boiling and from which it is poured as required. The difference between the tea-drinking in Russia and that of other nations is that the Russians add other things to their tea besides milk and sugar, one of the favourite ingredients being 1 or 2 spoonsful of jam instead of sugar.
