Montana Gold - Cinnamon Orange Rooibos
A blend to match the unique beauty of a Montana sunset. Nothing quite compares. Montana Gold comes out of Montana Tea & Spice in Missoula, MT in the form of a rich South African red rooibos paired with intense, heavy cinnamon, some smooth orange, and a touch of clove for bite. This blend beats all other cinnamon orange blends by a long shot, even usurping any traditional black blends in popularity, proving to be the single most popular tea in our store.

We are a small independent operation, and as such we operate inside of our retail space, the Phoenix Pearl Tea Tavern in Red Lodge, MT. We bag teas for orders while also serving in-store customers, including making cups of tea, making food, and selling bulk and retail purchases. Our employees work as quickly as they can, but we don't have a warehouse to operate out of with dedicated employees. As such, orders may take anywhere from 1-5 business days to ship. Thank you for understanding.

I first tried this tea many years ago, forgot about it for years, and was so excited to find it again! It's truly delicious, and I love that the tea has a little bit of sweetness itself and doesn't even need sugar or honey.
My friend from California loves tea and this one is one of her favorites. I was so glad to find out that I could get this tea delivered to her, and it was a great Christmas gift! I've never had this tea myself but she absolutely loves it!
So, so yummy.
The strong cinnamon flavor really stands out, providing that cozy feeling you appreciate when relaxing in the evening.
Order it. Drink it. Share it with friends. Then go order some more. :) My go-to tea. Great any time of day, with or without milk.
Reading all the other accolades here, I guess I could keep this short and just say “me too!”
My current favorite rooibos tea. Smooth with good cinnamon flavor and nice orange notes. No honey needed. I love this blend!
Visited Phoenix Pearl Tea Tavern while on vacation in Red Lodge, had this tea there and have been thinking about it ever since. I'm so glad I found them online now I can order my new favorite tea.
This tea is awesome! If you don't like Rooibos, this tea will change your mind!
I LOVE this tea. I drink it everyday! Highly recommend it. Process of order was slow, so order before you need it.
I was a spotty tea drinker before trying Montana Gold and now I can't get enough! I drink it almost every evening since it's caffeine free. I love the spiciness and slight sweetness so no added sweetener is necessary.
I have ordered Montana Gold tea before, I can not get enough of this wonderful tea. I know you will enjoy this tasty tea. I'm thinking of drinking it in front of a roaring fireplace, snowing outside, a quilt on you, that your Mother or Grandma created. Now that is Heaven. Montana Gold is also good cold. Image sitting outside on a double swing, watching your kids playing in their own excitment, a nice 75 degree. Montana Gold just does not get any better wherever your story takes you. Please just leave some for me.
