Bridging Cultures with Tea
Lake Missoula Tea Company, with a tea shop upstairs in the historic Masonic Lodge in Missoula, Montana, provides diverse, quality tea from around the world. Our mission is to educate and inspire others about the virtues of tea. We think that tea drinking can help lead to a more sustainable and peaceful world.
This January, Lake Missoula Tea Company embarked on its first international tea trip – to Indonesia – at the invitation of an artisan, organic tea farm located in western Java near Gunung Halimun-Salak
National Park. Our gracious hosts shared their home, food, and how they grow and process organic green, black and oolong teas. Watch for updates as we share this trip with you. With this exchange, we now bring you Indonesia’s finest teas: Mammoth Red, Halimun Mountain Green, and Java Oolong.
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.
