I LOVE being here! Eating and drinking tea outdoors is a truly divine experience in a metropolis, and the location - in the Metreon, makes it all the more majestic.

Super fell in love with this restaurant. I'm talking cute and dainty tea cups, tall glass windows, cheese boards, tea cookies. Yum!

This is one of the best spots for afternoon tea and lunches in SF in my opinion - on top of healthy and tasty plates, it's also got a gorgeous view and outside seating!

Indescribable sensations my tastebuds experienced while at Samovar Tea Lounge.
I ordered the Chinese Service, the tea paired with my meal was perfection and every flavor the combination offered I wished to savor as long as possible.

Samovar is possibly my new favorite restaurant of all time.
The masala chai, squash dumplings, kale salad with smoked duck and the chia pudding are all to diiieee for.
