Brewing Tea Russian-style, with a Samovar

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 some homes it still does.

Konstantin Ziskin, samovar enthusiast, speaking Russian: "Tea from a samovar tastes much better than tea from an electric kettle. It smells of smoke, fresh wood and pine cones."
