Lake Missoula’s Black Pearl has a dark liquor, and a taste of tart apple and dried plums. This oolong tea sneaks up on you – with a flavor you will find yourself craving. Clean, crisp and delicious.

The leaf style is rolled. Give the leaf plenty of room to open up and infuse. This is a tea that won’t get bitter, no matter how long you steep it.

We get this oolong from a tea company with a farm on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The family that owns this farm is Taiwanese and renown for their superb oolongs. Due to this tea’s exceptional taste, we’ve carried it on our shelves since we opened our doors in 2012.

Sumatran oolong.

  1. This is a great tea!!
    It took me a while to get brewing right, but this tea took over 12 infusions brewing Gong Fu style.
    NO astringency at all. It’s like a sweet tart apple.

    Thank you Lake Missoula Tea !!
    Getting ready to buy a lager amount.

  2. this is a very satisfying tea for any time of the day. sweet in flavor but also robust. it is also good cold. a favorite at our house.

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
