$30 for $50 Worth of Artisan Tea and Café Cuisine

The global fusion menu opens with handmade squash dumplings ($7.50) or seasonal tea soup with smoked duck, rice, and shiitake mushrooms ($12). The Russian tea service ($24) pairs concentrated zavarka tea with dainties including tarragon-marinated beets, devilled eggs with caviar, and brownies. Teas range from $6 for iced varieties to $29 for a pot of shade-grown gyokuro. This Groupon is valid exclusively at the Castro and Hayes Valley locations.

Samovar Tea Lounge

Your senses seem stronger inside Samovar Tea Lounge. Warm sunlight streams through tall windows and hushed conversation mingles with the sound of tea flowing from nubbly iron kettles, their contents perfuming the air with hints of herbs, smoke, toasted rice, flowers, and revolutions in Boston. This is owner Jesse Jacobs' vision, what he describes on his website as "an escape from the overflow of information" into an intimate space for human interaction, carved out by the global ritual of sharing tea.

This global emphasis inspires an artisanal menu of small plates and sandwiches that could conceivably be served during tea services in India and Morocco, or, in a playful turn by the chef, the Paleolithic era. It is the tea, however, that enables guests to get acquainted with international terroir without sneaking small shrubs through customs. Small, family farms in countries including Kenya, Paraguay, and Nepal, many of them organic, send their whole-leaf brews to fill Samovar's carefully curated collection. Each of its three locations serves the entire menu, which is comprehensive enough to classify oolong and pu-erh separately and boast vintage blends dating back to 1989.
