Puerh Earl Grey pairs light and dark, day and night. Any tea drinker will recognize the citrusy bergamot front flavor; puerh is aged and fermented Chinese tea, often described as dark, musty, or earthy. So, the ingredients hold opposite ends of the flavor spectrum. The bergamot shines through the darkness, while elevating the puerh earthiness into the realm of floral aromatics. As a result, our Puerh Earl Grey wins praise—both from puerh lovers, and from folks who usually steer clear. Drink it from either direction: a brighter puerh tea, or a deep and rich Earl Grey.

Fermented tea has probiotic qualities, making it gentler on the stomach, and giving the drinker a fuller, more satisfied feeling. Puerh is also good for multiple steeps, so you can brew 2 or 3 cups with every serving of this tea.

Our shou puerh comes from Jingmai Mountain in southern Yunnan, where the Dai people have hand-picked the ancient tea trees for millennia. These trees range from 700 to 1,000 years old. And since they grow in a natural rainforest, the tea leaves provide a wide range of antioxidants and nutrients. One more reason to love this new classic.

A made in Montana tea.

  1. This is my ‘go to’ tea each morning. It is not smokey like some puerh teas but is bold in flavor (you can use less tea per 8 ounces of water if you want it to be less strong). It is bergamot forward which I love. Just a delightful Earl Grey. I steep mine for 3 minutes at boiling (which is 195 degrees here at altitude and 212 degrees if not at altitude). And I almost always make a second steep with the leaves. The second batch is a bit less strong but not by much.

  2. Bought 100 grams back in late June at the store in Missoula. It lived up to the claims made by the young lady at the counter for taste and reuseability. Used it as my travel tea and could get three or four cups from one two of three oz tea ball. Just ran out this last weekend, 22 Oct. Got two, 12 cup pots both Sat & Sun from what I had left. Really a good tea and economical to boot. Highly recommend it.

    • Hi Edward, Really glad you like the Puerh Earl Grey Tea. And glad to hear you were steeping your tea a few times, puerhs are great teas for re steeping. Thank you for the feedback and using us as your tea provider ; )

A bright spot of bergamot, supported with earthy and complex layers of shou puerh. A great introduction to puerh tea.

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
