San Francisco's Samovar Tea Bar is an elegant spot that offers an array of rare and imported flavors that are added to its handcrafted beverage creations. Unlike other tea cafes, Samovar Tea Bar prides itself in its preparation methods that are all about creating the perfect brew.
In addition to using Alpha Dominate crucible boilers -- devices that precisely monitor water temperature, pressure and agitation through a built-in touchscreen -- the cafe also serves its craft beverages in handmade ceramic mugs, a project commissioned to Oakland design studio Atelier Dion.
This craft tea bar is not only a carrier of quality products but is also a haven for design lovers who will appreciate the look and feel of its sleek and apothecary-inspired decor. test test test test
