Each nation has its own ritual of tea drinking with its inherent attributes. In Russia, this tradition has always been associated with the samovar. However, it cannot be called a domestic invention, because a similar object existed, for example, in the culture of the ancient Romans. And the greatest resemblance to a samovar has an ancient Chinese device equipped with a pipe and a blower.
The fire samovars, are called wood or coal, are the most ancient version of the device. The water is heated here by burning a fire inside a tube, which is located in a container.
Samovar that looks like a can, was a form that became especially popular in the second half of the 19th century. This samovar has the shape of a smooth cylinder. It is beautiful, roomy, durable, and outwardly really looks like an ordinary can.
