“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
– Leo Tolstoy
February 2009 – Samovar, along with the rest of the western world, witnessed a host of momentous events at the close of 2008 and beginning of 2009. The near collapse of the capitalist system, global economic woes, fits and starts of major business reforms, an exciting sea change in American leadership, the list goes on. Rooting out the source of our current challenges enlightened us to our world’s duality: both our problems and solutions arise from the same source. Issues of integrity in business matters that previously hastened our downfall must now guide our destiny.
Aligning business practices to power social change is a principle Samovar’s been dialing in since Day One. And we’ll continue to do it as we have, that is unconventionally, mindfully, and from the inside out. Which is why we’re inspired by the observation of Tolstoy, agreeing that effective social change flows from individual choices. By satisfying needs, creating value and reconnecting people to the root of enjoying life, we discovered a warm cup of tea actually could transform the entire world.
Soundness, presence, clarity… the uncertainty of our times only increases the need for reflection, relaxation and renewal. Visit our lounges and try our teas and you’ll see that Samovar is taking the business of mankind’s happiness and contentment seriously. In doing so, we’re establishing new standards for success in the business world’s attitude toward health, wellness, and human development.
Who knew we could enjoy so much success and have this much fun showing the way for others to relax and find their transformation?
Create Peace Drink Tea. Preserving the simplicity and integrity of the Tea Tradition makes Samovar a clearing for timeless values leading to unbounded inner growth joy in the journey.
Let there be Peace on Earth and let it begin with Tea.
