Samovar Tea in San Francisco

September 1, 2009

When I visited my brother in the bay area in mid August, we went to San Francisco and explored some tea spots. We decided to make a video guide for (where you can create travel guides to share with others around the world). I thought I’d share our critique πŸ™‚

Here is when we first arrived and ordered our tea + dessert. Sorry I don’t quite know exactly what we ordered here. I’ll try to be more attentive next time πŸ™‚

My brother started making me laugh at the end of the video…oh siblings…

Our final word on Samovar

Sorry Samovar, we have to give you a 😦 However, our opinions are based on three items we ordered on their menu so we don’t want to project this experience on everything else they have to offer. They also serve actual meals here too which we did not try. Like I said, depending on what your objective is this might be a place you want to check out.
