With over 55 loose leaf teas, tisanes and herbal infusions MonTea is Lexington's only store dedicate to nothing but tea, tea accessories and tea to go. Our knowledgeable staff can help you choose what tea is right for you. So, if you are just beginning to taking an interest or are already familiar with the world of loose leaf teas MonTea can be your one stop shop for all you tea needs.

Four years ago MonTea owners, Danielle and Miller Montague, began researching the tea industry and its impact on the US. They attended tea expos, visited retail tea shops in bigger cities, joined associations and attended classes and talked to those already in the industry. It was determined that Lexington would indeed be an ideal place to open such a retail shop.

MonTea specializes in loose leaf tea and features over 55 different types from Elmwood Inn Fine Teas. Varieties include Japanese Sencha, Ti Kwan Oolong, Tippy Assam, Tropical Blend Black, Darjeeling White, Blueberry Infusion and Ginger Rooibos.

The shop also carries a wide variety of steeping systems to show patrons how easy it is to brew loose leaf tea at home, at the office or on the go. Systems include travel mugs with infusers, teapots with or without infusers and biodegradable tea bags. Those wanting to grab a cup on the go are able to choose an 8oz or 16 oz cup with any of the flavors offered, during the spring and summer iced tea will be featured.
