A time-honoured ritual

Spanning generations, Russian tea drinking is an integral part of Russia’s culture, highlighting the values of friendship and hospitality. At Hazendal’s tea room we celebrate these values, with a ceremony centered around a steaming samovar (a traditional Russian tea urn), a black tea brew that is especially sourced for Hazendal and some delicious Russian sweet and savoury delights. Join us to experience a taste of Russia.

Best assured of a radostnoye vremya (a joyful time)
