Samovar Tea Lounge
San Francisco, CA 94114
SF Weekly's Description
Exquisitely prepared exotic teas (there are dozens to choose from) and clever collations to accompany them are the raison d'être of this charming corner establishment. You can enjoy coconut-almond waffles in the morning, bento boxes and grilled duck sandwiches at lunch, tea sandwiches and a Russian plate featuring caviar if you're feeling peckish in the afternoon.
Tips from foursquare
At Samovar, the art of tea is the art of relaxation, and we recommend going with full-blown tea service. The Russian tea service brings you deviled eggs with caviar and other snacks.
I use their teas obssesively in my desserts. Also sit and enjoy a pot of tea, relax, you'll feel your karma get lighter. -Yigit Pura, Top Chef Just Desserts
