Oh, Teavana. I want to like you. I enjoy the many free samples of tea and looking at the cute teaware. I wish their washi paper tea containers were not so expensive — they are super cute and airtight. In the meantime I’ll use my cheap tins from world market.

The teas themselves are good but not so good that I’ve ever gone back for more. Recently I got a gift of some fruit tea from here that had gone totally bad — the fruit had gotten moldy or rotten in the bag and it smelled terrible. Really off-putting!

This is a typical modern asian tea place. There are lots of different flavors, and of course boba tea, and many snacks. I tried a floral tea that I enjoyed and had a big slice of their toast — amazingly good toast!

This is one of my favorite places to visit (and taking visiting friends to) when I’m in the area. Samovar is pricey but always delivers on quality tea and delicious food. I love the curry egg salad sandwiches and the scones with clotted cream. Clotted cream is a serious weakness of mine.

If it is a nice day and you can score a seat, try sitting outside! It’s a great view and one of the most peaceful places I’ve found in SF.

I teach young kids with special needs, which I love to do. Tea keeps me happy, energized, and sane!
