Lake Missoula Tea Company provides the best tea from around the world. We sell tea online as well as from our tea shop in Missoula, Montana. Lake Missoula Tea Company strives to educate and inspire others about the virtues of tea and offers premium teas produced by small-scale, artisan farmers from around the world.

Our leaf collection boasts every variety from fine Taiwanese oolong to Yunnan black – produced by ancient tea trees. With our strong ties to the tea farms we have visited in Indonesia, China, and Taiwan 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 late Pleistocene Epoch when a vast glacial lake covered the Missoula Valley. During the last Ice Age, 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.We trust you will drink and enjoy our tea with these connections in mind.
