Description

Red Elephant

Red Elephant is rich, full body tea. Layers of flavor reveal malt, toffee, and creme brule. A raw, baked finish gives this black tea a heavier mouthfeel. The leaf is whole and tippy and can withstand multiple steeps. This tea is named for approximately 300 elephants in southern Yunnan Province, China. 14 of these elephants migrated north to Kunming recently. They gradually circled back to the reserve in the south.

This exquisite tea comes from Jingmai Mountain in Yunnan.  The Dai people have handpicked this tea from the ancient tea trees for millennia.  Shou Puerh comes from a region in southern Yunnan where the 700 to 1,000 year old ancient tea trees grow. Because the ancient tea trees grow in a natural, rainforest environment, the leaf provides a unique combination of rich antioxidants and nutrients.

In addition, this farm is located along the ancient tea horse trade route. Tea was traded for horses with neighboring countries. Given the rich tea history of this region, the tea is layered with complexity and flavor.

Chinese organic black tea.

Caffeine. A direct sourced tea.

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.

What a wonderful shop! I've been in with my whole family a few times and it's just such a treat smelling teas, and learning new things. The lady behind the counter was extremely helpful for us newbies and she is so knowledgeable. During our last visit we tried the tea service and spent some time just enjoying cups of tea. The whole experience was a pleasure. 100% this is the best place to get tea in Missoula, and if you don't know anything about tea it's even better!

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.
