I have been to all 3 locations and they are fantastic! Love the food and tea pairings. But by far my favorite tea is the schizandra berry iced tea!! I love it so much that you’re not going to believe the extremes at which I go to get it. I live two hours away from SF so I’m not able to visit Samovar as often as I’d like. I have a friend who lives close to one of the shops so a few times a month she goes in with a water bottle and has them fill it up. Then she gives it to her husband who works at the same company as my husband and then my husband brings it home to me!

I love Samovar. The food is always good (love the jook! with the smoked duck!) … The tea is also good, especially the chai. Actually, they make the best chai that I’ve found.

Absolutely Perfect!! Tea was excellent. Croissant was delicious and our server was knowledgable and helpful when it came to the tea menu! We are coming back tomorrow for lunch before our flight home to NY.
