Samovar is a local Artisanal Tea House that serves and sells organically grown teas from around the world and they have three branches (at the Castro and Zen Valley) but their most popular branch is here at the Yerba Buena Gardens. Inside the Samovar Tea House here in yerbua buena is like a new age ambiance and the music is a smoothing house and lounge music too. They offer an assortment of international organic teas from around the world like the chinese Pu'er, the Indian Chai, the Taiwanese Oolong, the Japanese Macha and more. They also offer tea themed food motifs specials from $ 25 or more like the Japanese zen tea plus food and they put them into bento like boxes to serve. Prices here are on the high side since the stuffs are artisanal.

Slow Down and Sip Some Tea

Let your cup of tea lift you above the daily grind, filling you with calm and vitality. Let this infusion of pure water and carefully picked leaves connect you to the farmer who cultivated the tea harvest, the Samovarian who brewed the pot, and to your breath in this moment. Listen to your heartbeat and look around. Who do you care about? Who cares about you? What else matters? Not much actually. Can you slow down enough to see your life and touch the world and those people you love?

Favorite Dish: hot teas are served in small or medium glasses or for large groups, in pots and costs $ 4 for a small cup and $ 10 for large pots. Iced Teas are in large and tall glasses and costs $ 6 and above. Other foods like the salmon quiches costs $ 15.
