Lake Missoula Tea Company

we pick global so you can drink local

The relationships we develop are the best thing about our tea.  With the Indonesian tea farm owner who acts as part time counselor to his staff.  The Kenyan farmer who shares purple tea plants with his pickers.  The Tawainese tea marketer who is so busy she had her one vacation with us.  The coffee roaster who appreciates our tea in his shop.  The restaurant owner who says serving our tea was the best decision he ever made.  The man who tells us they had the best tea at a caffe that serves our tea.  The customer who comes daily for oolong before work.  Our employees when they are glad to be at work.  The company that says our tea sets their kombucha a notch above.  This is what makes our tea the best.
