Eugene Onegin

Russian Doll

Russian Doll

Constance’s Russian friend was keen to show her how to brew a good cup of Russian Caravan tea in the new Samovar.  It is the perfect cup of tea to accompany CBC’s Saturday Afternoon at the Opera, which is presenting  Eugene Onegin by Tchaikovsky.

She and Min would rather play with the little felt Russian doll that appeared in the Hitty Cupboard.

  1. Wow! It seems like matryoshka dolls are popping up everywhere! How cool that the Quimpers now have one in their charge, and a cute baby at that!

  2. Constance’s samovar reminded me that I have a tiny samovar that the Bonsai Hittys could be using this winter. I’ll have to get it out and see if Mrs. Olive Pitt knows how to make Russian tea!

  3. That samovar is so impressive!! Is Caravan tea different in taste from …say English Breakfast tea?? Does
    one drink it with lemon or milk or our favorite…sugar!! I had to chuckle at Rose and Min ducking out on the
    opera to play dolls. Great photos!!
