Workshop on tea culture in Peipsiveer
In our tea culture workshops, will discuss the history of tea-drinking in the Old Believers’ villages, talk about what Ivan chai is and how it is made. The workshop is carried out in a cosy house of Old Believers. We will bring the water straight from the well, make samovar tea from it, and taste the traditional cooked sugar of Old Believers. Depending on the season, guests can also participate in the process of making Ivan chai with the hostess of Mesi Tare (summer time) or hear stories on history and the healing properties of tea while enjoying a cup of Ivan chai (autumn-winter time).
