In Pursuit of Wood Dragon Oolong

I made it to In Pursuit of Tea's pop-up tea shop!  The shop opened two weeks ago and is located at 33 Crosby on the border of SoHo and Chinatown in NYC.  I ordered a cold-infsued Wood Dragon Oolong from Taiwan and was surprised by how refreshing it was; I've never associated an oolong with refreshment.  The tea lingered on my tongue with notes of smooth dark chocolate and wood.  The tea is made primarily from twigs which the tea shop staffer said meant it was low in caffeine.  Unfortunately, the shop did not have Wood Dragon for sale.  However, you can purchase this oolong online for $13.75 per 1/4 lb.

Other offerings included a cold infused Lemon Verbena and Oriental Beauty, another oolong, as well as Iced Matcha and pastries.
