DRINK FOR ENLIGHTENMENT: The Contra Costa Times Visit Samovar
Get your Zen on at the new Samovar Tea Lounge location in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley.
The third Bay Area location opened across from the Buddhism center, which means there could be some deep conversation and possibly a yoga mat or two.
You can choose from more than 50 kinds of tea, most of which I’ll bet you’ve never heard of, and healthy food such as a ginger quinoa waffle, jook, or a raw honeycomb, blue cheese and fruit platter. I was sent some of Samovar’s Ocean of Wisdom tea, and, while I’m still waiting for the promise of the name to kick in, it was indeed delicious.
