Episode 409 - Russian Romance
Things are heating up...
Samovars have been essential in serving hot beverages in Russian households for centuries. They operate by a simple process: a candle or heat source warms the beverage for all to enjoy. But, that's just half of it. Samovars are the centre of conversation over a cup of freshly brewed tea. From the salons of Russia's highest society to the stone hearth of the simple, common people, samovars keep things and conversations piping hot.
