Let ‘er buck – Big Sky Black is a kick in the pants. The first sip delivers a bright wake-up call, and then quickly fades into a long, smooth riff on the Montana spirit. If you love the fresh smell of a barn, or the dry prairie landscape, then this tea is for you.

Most folks who grew up in the Big Sky State (including many of our staff) learn hard work as a matter of course, whether it’s chores on the ranch, long days in the woods, or weary nights waiting tables. We’re proud of our work ethic. But we also don’t mind a strong shot of something tasty as a pick-me-up. That’s where let ‘er buck – Big Sky Black comes in.

Think of a Charlie M. Russell painting: you see the energy and vigor of the American West—but if you stick with the image, you’ll find layers of color and beauty that you didn’t notice at first glance. We think good tea should do both: get the job done, and also satisfy on a deeper level.

Thank you for taking us along for the ride. Let ‘er buck!

Take a ride with our strongest breakfast blend. Smooth and potent like well-aged liquor, with traces of leather and campfire smoke.

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
