CHEESE TEA COMES TO OKC
Woodshed Coffee and Tea features new summer drink topper made of cheese.
OKLAHOMA CITY, June 3, 2019 — A new kind of drink hits Oklahoma City with a distinct name and taste, two new featured flavors include Matcha Cheese Tea and Ruby Hibiscus Cheese Tea.
As summer begins Woodshed's unique and best selling matcha cold brew gets an optional cheese topper for those looking to continue to stretch their pallet in all sorts of wonderful directions. Cheese Tea is also available on other cold brewed drinks including Ruby Hibiscus, Lavender Rose, Gunpowder Green, Sweet Tea cold brew teas and their cold brew coffee.
“In watching worldwide tea trends, we continued to see a "Cheese Tea" in different instagram stories and posts throughout Japan and Asia. As the trend became a craze in Japan, we began testing our own recipes and finally landed on an incredible Cheese Tea developed by Director of Retail and Wholesale Experience, Logan Waugh. His take on Cheese Tea created a delicious blend of flavors which compliment our curated selection of 24-hour cold brewed teas." said founder, Sam DuRegger.
Contrary to your first instinct when hearing or reading "Cheese Tea," the experience is one to try first hand. The dollop of whipped topping is very sweet and tangy, much like cheesecake. "When we add it to our matcha and oat milk cold brew it becomes matcha cheesecake in a glass. Add it to our refreshing ruby hibiscus herbal tea it becomes a chilled hibiscus and grapefruit cheesecake to enjoy." added DuRegger.
“The recipe will be kept a secret, but I think when you try it you'll be able to guess what makes the flavor pop!” said Waugh.
Woodshed has been open since August of 2018 stationed next to Blue Seven on May and Grand in Northwest Oklahoma City. This month marks another milestone as Woodshed will install a new illuminated sign, so as to attract more of the traffic from May Avenue. They will also begin Sunday hours beginning June 2nd, with posted open hours from 8am to 5pm.
Woodshed Coffee & Tea strives to responsibly source quality loose-leaf tea and single-origin coffee for the enjoyment of our customers, even to the last drop. Inspired by our founder’s childhood years spent on a farm, where toil in the woodshed in the summer brought warmth in the winter, Woodshed operates on the values of inspiration, sincerity, stewardship, responsibility and design.

MATCHA AND MORE AT NEW COFFEE AND TEA SHOP
Woodshed Coffee and Tea now open next to Blue Seven in Nichols Hills.
OKLAHOMA CITY, September 14, 2018 — A new shop hits the OKC coffee scene this month, specializing in loose-leaf teas, single-origin coffee and a unique matcha green tea blend. Woodshed Coffee & Tea is now open to the public from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday at their retail location near May and Grand.
Woodshed got its start selling curated teas and matcha latte mix to retailers in Oklahoma, Utah, Texas and Arkansas. Now, founder Sam DuRegger and co-owners Dave Chong, Brad Ulrich and Logan Waugh have opened a modern retail space in Nichols Hills—an area without much of a local coffeeshop presence.
“We’re excited to bring our curated selection of coffee and tea to this market,” said DuRegger. “We aren’t looking to become the next trend, but we hope to be a presence in our neighborhoods and the larger OKC community.”
The storefront is connected to clothing store Blue Seven and its local-goods partner Just OK, so shop-goers can spend time in Woodshed’s cafe or walk freely between retailers. Customers can expect an array of craft coffee drinks and loose-leaf teas, as well as homemade pastries including some gluten-free options. Woodshed’s specialty and current customer favorite? Matcha lattes made with oat milk.
“Our matcha blend is subtly sweet, and the oat milk gives it a really smooth finish,” said Waugh, retail manager and co-owner. “Even people who don’t typically like matcha have really loved it.”
Woodshed’s grand opening party is scheduled for Saturday, September 22, and will include a limited supply of free cold brew tea and free t-shirts for the first 100 guests.
