Oolong Tea

Oolong Tea

Oolong tea originates from mountainous regions of China and Taiwan. Oolong is oxidized 10-30% or 40-70%. This means oolong can be more like a green tea or more like a black tea. Distinct oolong tastes include nutty, fruity and creamy flavors. Oolong is known to help with mental acuity, weight loss, high blood pressure and more. The leaf style can be open or rolled.

There is an adage that says eventually all tea drinkers seeking superb tea will arrive at oolong. For flavor complexity and layers, we’ve certainly found this to be true.  Oolongs can often be brewed multiple times and the taste of the leaf will change with each steep.

Our Sources

Our oolong grows in the high mountain tea farms found in the Nantou region of Taiwan, the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Java, and mainland China. Our oolong teas are grown and produced with the knowledge that comes with generations of expertise.

Fresh Tea

Lake Missoula Tea Company’s oolong tea is fresh. Our teas are ordered in small amounts and are directly sourced from farms whenever possible. We properly store tea to maintain quality from the farm to your cup. You can buy this tea online from the list above.

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
