Seems like a nice place for Tea tasting but I couldn’t stay for one. Maybe next time.
Although I was able to taste a Blue People Oolong and liked it so much that I bought some.
Great selection of Teaware as well.

This was my second day discovering San Francisco with a couple of friends and when I realized that our tour bus was going to pass by several blocks from Samovar Tea Lounge I convinced them that it was a good time for a Tea break.
We all enjoyed our break from the city tour. We found peace, amazing teas and very knowledgeable and friendly waiters that helped us feel as if time stood still and we just entered a peaceful haven of paradise.
We even had a Tarot card reading and was able to buy the transparent Tea pots I was looking for.

This was my first time in San Francisco and went directly to Samovar Tea Lounge.
I immediately was struck by the calmness that went into my mind as soon as I entered. I don’t know if it was the soft lounge music, or the different tea aromas floating in the air but I immediately felt at home and relaxed.
My waitress recommended me to try a Yame Sencha they’ve just received and I love it!
Then I decided to stay a little bit while reading a book and having some cookies.
Next time I took a look outside it was already dark and it was too late to visit all the other touristic places I had planed to, so I ordered an Oolong Tea and a Japanese Maki Bowl: amazing! What a great evening!

I highly recommend this place to all the Tea Lovers out there!
