A cultural heritage of such power and beauty we could not ignore. That's how we got an obligatory item of our weekly programme - Oblomov's tea parties on Fridays, at 20-00.
In Russia, tea-drinking is a symbol of long heart-to-heart talks in a good company, and we make it according to all the rules: the finest porcelain table with aromatic tea, a richly decorated table with different kinds of food (cake, jam, etc.), and the brightly polished samovar, the main attribute of this tradition.
The china clatters, conversations are held and romances are played. All these are integral parts of the tea-drinking culture. Time flies by during such a meal.
