Basically, a samovar, used only the very rich and famous people because, firstly, the tea itself was worth a lot of money because it was imported goods, and the samovar in Russia at that time had not yet produced, they were also purchased. Only in the mid 18 th century in Russia was first started doing samovar. Tula was namely the town, where the first "samovar" wizard.
Mistakenly called the city of Tula samovar only. This would include almost all of the Tula Region, since the production involved in many villages and towns. This primarily due to the fact that production of samovars very time-consuming process that requires the division of labor specialization. Often happened that one village does cock, the second case, the third pen, etc. and Thule all this was going to a single samovar. While Tula samovar became famous throughout Russia. An interesting fact is that before the samovar was sold by weight, ie the more it weighs, the more worthwhile. Gradually, the Tula samovar there is some kind of standardization, which did not affect the authority of the Tula masters, and even more glorified samovar not only for Russia but for Europe.
