Bay seniors curious about what it is going to take to make drinking tea the new coffee, might cast a glance at the new Samovar teahouse on (of course) Valencia Street. Forget sad and soggy tea bags. Samovar has crucible urns as sleek and pristine as anything you would find in an OR. In a smart move they edited/curated their selection down to a handful like chai made with fresh ground masala and real cane sugar. $4 for a small pot. Samovar has three other less utopian locations in the city. The Geezer wishes them luck but doubts they have enough caffeine to feed the local buzz.
