From Russia With Love…served in a Podstakannik
Tea customs in different countries intrigue me. I enjoy trying to recreate some as best I can to enjoy while I imagine I am visiting there.
I would love to visit the museums in Russia. I’ve been fortunate to see some of the wonderful Faberge and some of the incredible jewelry that has been in special museum exhibits here in the States over the years.
A friend gifted me with this beautiful Faberge book that I am reading today. Isn’t this Faberge Egg exquisite?
The Tardis is steeping Georgian Caravan Tea, a limited edition Maker’s Series from Steven Smith Teamaker, a gift from friend Marilyn. The box included this delicious huckleberry jam to stir into the tea as per the custom in Russia.
I’m sipping it from a favorite antique silver plated podstakannik which dates to the late 1800’s and nibbling on little Russian Tea Cake cookies.
Reading, sipping, sweets….a perfect way to enjoy tea time!
Cheers and Happy Sipping!
