1. Verdigris Tea and Chocolate 


There are so many delightful options at Verdigris Tea and Chocolate to fuel you in the cool fall weather. Enjoy the chai latte, made with classic sweet and spicy notes, or sip on a steamy matcha latte. For a unique treat, try the Bowl of Soul (chamomile tea steeped in steamed milk and honey) or Golden Bowl of Soul (turmeric spice blended with honey and steamed milk). And if you aren’t in a tea mood, try the Hudson hot chocolate or the vanilla steamer (steamed milk, French vanilla, and coconut syrup). Drinks can be made vegan upon request.
