In Russia, the Samovar was used for making tea and cooking water.
A heated tube or cylinder runs through the middle of the Samovar and thus keeps the water in the container warm.
The tube can be filled at the bottom with different types of fuel such as coal or charcoal.
At the front of the Samovar is a tap where hot water is drained.
From the tea pot which stood on top of the Samovar, the concentrated tea (tea extract) zavarka could then be removed and combined with the warm water.
