The waiter who did the tea presentation was very knowledgeable and charismatic. We had a great time there. Ambiance was spot on too. I'll be back for their beef noodle dish I was eye balling last time. :) Cheers, Tracy

The selection of teas we were given to choose from for the tasting was wonderful. Our waitress was very helpful and never made us feel rushed. We got an all-vegetarian dim sum sampler as well, which was so good it took me about three days to come to the conclusion that they were all just really amazing vegetarian options and not some meat dim sum that had made their way onto the plate by accident.

What You'll Get

Without tea, leaves would eventually fall out of fashion, and trees would replace their chlorophylled coverings with powdered wigs. Keep trees from suffering bad hair days with today's Groupon: for $15, you get an introductory tea presentation and tasting for two at Imperial Tea Court (a $30 value). This deal can be used at Imperial Tea Court's Ferry Building and Berkeley locations.

A Time Out San Francisco Critics' choice, Imperial Tea Court provides leaf lovers with access to some of the world's most desirable teas as well as unrivaled expertise in the ways of steepery. Park your carcass in one of its highly regarded teahouses for a 45- to 60-minute primer on the world's most popular beverage and its steamy history, including its medicinal roots in ancient times as an alternative to Tommy John surgery. Pouring hot cups of tea and tepid earfuls of facts, the teahouses' resident sip savants will help guests understand tea's various categories and acquaint them with the traditional Chinese gaiwan, a covered teacup developed for use on turbulent dragon flights and birthday party bounce houses. The tasting includes two samples of your choice of teas, leaving you with a pleasant aftertaste as well as a fully brewed headpot of knowledge with which to douse tea-loving coworkers at the dream factory.


Time Out San Francisco named Imperial Tea Court a Critics' choice. The San Francisco Chronicle and TeaMuse, a monthly tea newsletter, reviewed it. Frommer's calls the Ferry Building Marketplace, including the Imperial Tea Court, exceptional. More than 100 Yelpers rate it an average of four stars.
