New teas, Immortality Herb, & Kenya-here we come!

We recently scooped up Creamy Coconut Pouchong, a flavor so bold it will crush any craving with creamy sweetness.  Our friends at the Missoula Food Co-op asked for a tea detox and we delivered - The Co-op Cleanse is sure to do you good.  Try the Wall Tea Brewer – all in one glass steeper if you need to shake up your style, we love the simplicity.  Stay on top of new teas, teaware at LMTCo.

Seeking the fountain of youth elixir?  LMTCo offers Immortality Herb, or Jaio Gu Lan – a Chinese herb said to have immune-boosting, anti-aging properties.  We recently brewed it up cold and Missoulians fought hand over fist to partake of this sweet tea. Ok, no one’s fighting anyone…but we’ve seen an upsurge of interest in Immortality Herb to supplement a healthy lifestyle...remember to steep it at a low temperature-140 degrees- for 1-2 minutes.

A customer recently called Christina the ‘Matcha Maven.’ How does she get her matcha so good?  While she was born with that special something that not everyone is lucky enough to have (sorry), the right matcha-making tools help. A smooth, consistent matcha requires: matcha bowl, matcha whisk, whisk holder, matcha scoop (chaissan), and, of course, high-quality matcha. We just got a new assortment of these goodies – at an affordable price!

Recall the excellent Kenyan teas we offered when we first opened? We are excited to visit a farm that grows purple tea.  Purple tea is billed a super tea because of a high concentration of antioxidants & anthocyanins (anti-carcinogenic) and its drought, frost and pest resistant properties. LMTCo is excited to visit this farm & learn why this tea is so special. 

Follow our blog as Heather & Jake embark on their Kenyan purple tea journey this month.  The farm is in the Nandi Hills along the western end of the Great Rift Valley.  Extensively forested prior to colonization, this region is now the most populated and productive agricultural land in Kenya, making it the 3rd largest exporter of tea in the world.

Lauren is working on a new Yerba Mate blend that promises to excite your taste buds, watch out for this tea addition. When not serving tea or otherwise engaged, our newest employee, Peter, translates Swahili for Soft Landing Missoula refugee families from the Congo.

LMTCo is on the shelves at Chicago’s Kramer’s Health Food Store & Cafe. Rock Creek Coffee Roasters is our first account in Billings and Atticus Coffee & Gifts – an eclectic and cool venue - is our latest Spokane account.  Stop in for an LMTCo cuppa when Dog & Bicycle Bakery Café opens in the new Sawmill District in Missoula!
