Indonesian Tea, Amongst Village and Mountains

Step off a plane in Jakarta, Indonesia and you may find yourself leaving that massive city and weaving up a mountain road. This road will eventually end at tea farm nestled in a mountain notch, the ocean a distant view. If you find yourself here, you’ll know you arrived at Indonesia’s finest, organic tea farm.  At the center is the Tea Master’s house, where all things tea are executed with care and precision. Not far down the road is a village, and a little further down the hill is another village. These are the people who grow, pick and manufacture our tea. This farm produces the best tea Java, Indonesia has to offer and we are proud to carry it.

Indonesia, originally called the Spice Islands and an archipelago nation with over 18,000 islands, has a long history with tea. After Dutch colonization, tea exports to Europe began in 1828. Independent from the Dutch in 1945, it remains a global contender with tea and ranks 6th in world tea production. While most of Indonesia produces tea for tea bags, the farm we work with manufactures premium, whole leaf tea for specialty tea markets. Drink this tea knowing that this is simply the best tea you can get from Java!

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
