Real People, Real Tea - Tea stories from around the world

Across the world, tea serves a vital function – it can be both a social beverage that fosters human interaction or a daily ritual for individuals seeking a longer, more fulfilling life. In its own way, tea is a pathway to greater social and cultural awareness thanks to the plant’s ability to calm the nerves and focus the mind. Tea crosses culture, socio-economic strata, gender, age, and all other ways people can be different. A member of our family who travels extensively tells us that in the Middle East and Asia tea provides a context where community conversations are had and important decisions are made.

Real People Real Tea presents a cross section of the tea world from all walks of life and from a myriad of places. Read and enjoy these rich stories of personal experience..

We seek tea stories from all over the world.  Know someone who has a tea story to tell?  Contact us.

Tea Stories from Around the World

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.

Amazing tea! Beyond my expectations and well worth the stop! Delightful service and amazing blends! If you are in the area I would highly recognize them. I will be ordering blends online-they are so good!
