I don't think the beverage menu was shown on the NYT post at all.
I can't find the non-alcoholic drink list, but does look like they feature a pu'er and rum cocktail, so I'm guessing they have some sort of hot pu'er that you can enjoy with your $18 bowl of crossing-the-bridge noodles.
from eater.com : Tribeca: Lotus Blue, possibly the first ever restaurant in Manhattan to specialize in food from China’s southwestern Yunnan Province, opened on Tuesday night tonight on Reade Street. The menu features Yunnan-inspired dishes like a banana blossom and mango salad, steamed pork belly with candied plums, and sesame pumpkin pancakes for dessert. They also have a specialty cocktail menu with drinks made with things like Thai chili-infused vodka and jasmine tea-infused tequila. Status: Certified Open; 110 Reade St., 212-267-3777.
