San Francisco | Samovar Tea Lounge

Sunday, August 25, 2013 0 No tags Permalink 0

Late Friday afternoon in San Francisco. A table for one, a notebook… 

…and warm masala chai. I’ve been to all the Samovar Tea Lounge locations in the city, but the one at Yerba Buena Gardens is my favorite. Equal parts outdoor and indoor seating, super high ceilings, and tons of natural light.  

I keep meaning to try the other teas (like Velvet Cacao – pu’erh with cacao and roasted dandelions, and Tolstoy’s Sip which comes with a scoop of strawberry jam) but there’s something about a spicy, creamy chai that seems appropriate for SF weather. Plus, it’s sweetened with palm instead of plain sugar. A subtle touch that makes all the difference ^_^
