Lake Missoula Tea Company – we pick global so you can drink local

Our leaf collection boasts every variety from fine Taiwanese oolong to Yunnan black produced by ancient tea trees. We have strong ties to the tea farms we visited in Indonesia, China, Taiwan and Kenya.  We are confident in the quality of our teas and our ability to continue to source new and innovative brews.

Lake Missoula Tea Company’s name is inspired from the Pleistocene Epoch, or the last Ice Age.  During this time, a vast glacial lake covered the Missoula Valley and a land bridge connected Asia to North America. Our name symbolizes the cultural connections that originated when humans migrated to new places and our tea provides a tangible connection to this history.  Drink and enjoy our tea with these connections in mind.
