Who: Jesse Jacobs
Where: Samovar Tea Lounge in San Francisco, CA
The Question: What kind of tea should I drink with my favorite foods?
Jesse Jacobs is a passionate, wholehearted tea-lover and the owner of Samovar Tea Lounge, a small chain of four tea cafes located in San Francisco. Samovar is noted for its top of the line tea offerings as well as its innovative pairings of tea and food.
As a tea lover, I wanted to know more about serving food and tea, so I sat down with Jesse at his lovely Zen Valley location to discuss the principles of pairing food with tea.
