Tea Lounge FAQ

Do you take reservations in the Lounges?

Looking to book our Yerba Buena Gardens location for a private event? With options for indoor, outdoor, or both, and from semi-private to fully-private use, and with healthy and creative dining options spanning all dietary requirements (gluten-free, paleo, vegan, and more) our team will deliver an event that you and your guests will love.

More intimate gatherings and tasting events can be hosted at either of our Fillmore or Valencia Street cafe locations.

Do you hold tea tastings?

We offer private tea tastings at the Tea Lounges for both individuals and groups. Tasting events are a great way to experience a variety of our premium teas and learn about tea. Fill out our inquiry form for more information.

Why don’t you have wireless internet access?

Quality living is about really connecting, with ourselves, and with those around us. We find that creating a place that does not offer internet access, allows for better human connection. Learn more about our company values here.

Do you franchise? When will you open a Tea Lounge in my city?

That is top secret information. We are expanding. If you think you have what it takes to work for us, invest in us, or help us to broaden our message, let us know. We are always eager to connect with passionate people. Feel free to contact us.

Are you hiring?

We’re always looking for people to join the Samovar team. Please feel free to submit your resume for consideration.

Do you offer vegetarian, vegan or gluten free food options on your menu?

Yes! Click here to view our menu; items with a “v” or “g” to indicate vegan and gluten free food options. In addition, tea is naturally gluten free. However, since we source our teas from a variety of small farms worldwide, we aren’t able to guarantee that teas have not been processed in gluten free environments in the countries of origin.

I still need help.
