It's time for a tea

The tea (we called it like Turkish people CHAY) appeared in Russia in 17 century. From that time it became the most popular hot drink all over the country. We can drink it with milk, with lemon sometimes we put jam, confiture or honey inside. The best thing about "tea ceremony" in Russia it is SAMOWAR.
The way of drinking is also different. The nicest one is drinking from the sauser.
Many famous russian artists were fascinated by this tradition. Have a look how bright and coloroful it can be - drinking tea in summertime on the DACHA's terrace.

Truly yours,
