Red Elephant


An organic Chinese black tea with a heavier body. Hints of malt, toffee, and creme brule.


Red Elephant is a rich, full body tea. The first sip reveals 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 located in southern Yunnan.

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.

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

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.

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.
