Black Tea

About Black Tea

If you enjoy caffeine in the morning, then black tea is a great choice for starting your day. Generally, black teas are 100% oxidized and contain more caffeine than other types of teas. Tea leaves may be broken, twisted, or rolled to enhance flavor. Broken leaf tea is typically more potent than its rolled or twisted counterparts, due to the exposure of the entire leaf while steeping. Twisted or rolled teas have varying degrees of sweetness and nuanced flavors. You might notice some of our black teas are referenced as red tea. That’s because black tea is also known as red tea in many regions of the world, given its coppery red liquor.

Our Sources

We offer a diverse selection of black teas sourced from all over the world. All of our tea farm partnerships offer inspiring stories you can learn about in our blogs and by following us on social media. We have tea from small farms in Indonesia, the ancient tea trees of Jingmai Mountain, the only tea farm in the Andean Mountains of Colombia, and the beautiful Nandi Hills in Kenya. We get tea from an Assam, India, a certified Elephant Friendly farm. Our Darjeeling, India tea source is woman owned and actively rewilds part of the farm into corridors for elephants and other animals.

Fresh Tea and Organically Grown

Lake Missoula Tea Company’s black tea is fresh because we order small amounts and directly source our tea whenever possible. Almost all of our tea is organic, and when given the choice, we buy organic. We store our tea properly to maintain quality from the farm to your cup. You can buy this tea online from the list below.

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

We are major tea snobs and I was absolutely delighted by this store. There are the usual suspects as well as shelves of unique, hand-picked teas. Highly recommend the Golden Snail :) It was really special being able to try whatever tea I wanted before buying. I'm looking forward to subscribing to their tea club. I would love to come back: everything was delicious.
