Chaikhana

Chaikhana (literally "tea room") is very valuable in the East. This is not just a place where one is treated with the most popular beverage in the East, delicious and nourishing food. It is justly said: "Tea - is a long talk of good people."

But it took on other functions too, many of which have survived to this day. In the tea houses people commit transaction, negotiat conditions of serious events in the lives of families, building houses, matchmaking, funeral rites, resolve conflicts that arise between neighbors.

English traveler Alexander Borns, who visited Bukhara in the early 30's of the last century, in his book, wrote about the great passion of Bukharans to tea: they drink it everywhere, at all times, in different ways: with sugar, without sugar, with lemon and without lemon, with fat, salt ...

In the East there is worked out a special ritual of tea brewing: It has to be reversed thrice, so that it brew up very good and we've got a real fragrant green tea. It is served in small bowls. We can not give the guest a bowl filled to the brim, tea should be drunk in small sips in order, to realize its true taste and appreciate it. And what could be better for this than the teahouse?

Teahouse collected over a cup of tea folk musicians, poets. Here people could hear songs, poems, humorists competed with each other. Nevertheless, in the East the tea is just an excuse to gather with friends in a designated day, and leisurely, with a taste to talk about life.
