What you'll do

Could there be something more pleasant than drinking tea after a good day? Probably nothing, just a tea party from a samovar with traditional Russian sweets in a cozy courtyard in the center of Moscow) In Russia, the samovar came into use in the 17th century. Today we will touch on this interesting tradition. Melt the samovar with firewood, boil water and make an excellent tea with herbs and lemon. Settling down on a bench and chairs in my quiet, cozy courtyard in the very center of Moscow. All sorts of traditional sweets, honey, as well as warm rugs that I always have at hand will help us pass the evening perfectly! Grab gingerbread, cookies, chocolates and a good mood. Welcome to a cozy tea party!

Hello ! My name is Nikita and I love to have fun and meet new people. For over 2 years now, I am proudly holding the title of "Airbnb Suprehost". I spent an incredibly successful summer season building 3 mini electric boats and arranging an Eco-Route on them in Serebryany Bor. That winter I drive there hiking / skiing excursions with tea party in a nature reserve. Sometimes in the evenings I still have time to introduce everyone to "samovaring". Welcome to my cozy patio for a cup of hot tea with lemon and traditional Russian sweets! I will be glad to new guests, share interesting stories in the cozy atmosphere of the Moscow courtyard.

Samovar, table, chairs, bench, warm rugs, utensils for tea drinking.

Where you'll be

We will have a tea party in the courtyard in the city center near Old Arbat. For 4 years I have been caring for this part of the yard. Then I organized a rock garden and a real mini square from Moscow historical pavers, which I saved from a landfill.
