Japanese Tea Tasting

We carry the best Japanese tea you can offer in the United States. The family we work with has manufactured tea for multiple generations and received multiple awards for their tea’s quality. And it’s always a treat to sit down and talk one on one with your tea source. So when we had the opportunity, we took it! A visit to Seattle opened the door for a tea tasting, and we jumped on it!

We tasted genmaicha and sencha gong fu style and relished every bit of it. It was great to meet Noli for the first time and Kyohei again. Some of you might know that I met Kyohei on a bus while in Long Beach, California! We started talking, and it was then that I learned that his family makes tea in Japan! Our tea relationship grew from that first meeting.

Thank you for such great tea! Kyohei’s family has manufactured tea for three generations and produced a premium product. The flavor is consistent, and the teas stand on their own. We are proud to offer such fine products in Missoula, Montana at the tea shop. Pictured is Sencha Tea Tasting.

Best store in Montana possibly in all of the United States. I don't know. This is the first Gong Fu tea shop I've ever been to. I came in for a matcha whisk because I donated mine to a museum. Before I left a random customer who was introduced to me as a regular bought me tea. I hugged him which isn't something I normally do. But I was incredibly thankful. Then the man behind the counter gave me a free sample. I went in looking for a simple tool and left with tea and a happy spirit. I am looking forward to making it back as soon as possible! I loved it. I think it will always hold a special place in my blood pumping organ.

This atmosphere of this shop is so wonderfully cozy and pleasant. The menu has such a nice selection of to-go options and the loose teas to purchase for home brewing are phenomenal and in vast selection. The service was quick and friendly. I came here with my family and we bought many of the different teas to try, as well as some to-go teas. My sister and I really enjoyed their house Chai. It was the perfect amount of spice and tea, like a spicy hug for your soul. I will be recommending this shop to others in the future.

I've been going to Lake Missoula Tea Company for years, and recently have had the privilege of putting some of their tea in my store. The quality of the tea is fantastic, and the blends are delightful. I have also attended one of their tasting / learning events and it was great. I highly recommend their downtown store for meeting with friends, family or even just for a nice place to go and have a cup of perfectly brewed tea.

Amazing variety great prices and they'll brew top shelf teas you may be reluctant to buy before trying for a dollar more. Great selection for Missoula. Friendly knowledgeable staff and beautiful tea sets and accessories

The atmosphere was so relaxing and pleasant I could stay there all day! The staff are super helpful and polite and helped me with all my questions (not to mention some helpful tips from patrons as well). The tea they have is top notch and all the selection you could ask for
