San Francisco is a city with a lot to offer. Any visitor and resident is certain to have a diverse experience. In a matter of blocks, one can encounter a variety of culture and creativity. It is a place that encourages exploration and open-minded, an opportunity to experience some of the world in a small space. Alyson recently went on a SF adventure:
Whenever I’m in the city, something I enjoy doing is checking out the local spots in different neighborhoods. Although SF is only 7 miles by 7 miles, there are so many different neighborhoods and an endless amount of restaurants and bars to check out. I’ve lived in the Bay Area most of my life and I still feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface!
I came across the Samovar Tea Bar in the Mission not too long ago and decided to finally pay them a visit. I did some research on the tea bar and their passion for tea is real. In a city as busy as San Francisco, I can appreciate the time and energy they put into this location to create a relaxing atmosphere. I've mentioned how I use tea as a way for me to unwind and the white walls and intimate space was a perfect way to relax, reflect, and focus on the tea.
I heard raving reviews about the masala chai latte and oh my goodness…it’s SO SO good. This masala chai latte was probably the best one I’ve ever had…it was sweet, spicy, and felt so indulgent! There are other types of teas that are available without non-dairy milk and a few food items just in case you’re hungry.
Like I mentioned, this location is pretty intimate, so seats are limited and I recommend making reservations at the Yerba Buena Gardens location.
