About Steep Mountain Tea

Our Story

Steep Mountain Tea House was created by Inspired Madness when they acquired Townshend’s Bozeman Teahouse in late 2020. The name Steep Mountain was inspired by the beautiful mountains here in Bozeman, Montana and the fact that we just love to steep tea (pun 100% intended.)


We partner with the world’s most meticulous and well traveled tea buyers who have formed on-the-ground relationships with the families who farm and produce our teas. We believe in creating the smallest impact possible on our natural environment. We carry the old favorites you knew and loved at Townshend’s Bozeman Teahouse, along with some exciting new teas and treats.


Our Values

Our mission is to serve fresh, expertly crafted and procured teas and products in a positive, community-oriented environment. We believe in equal pay for equal work and care about the happiness and health of our employees, and about their goals in life.

Our vision is to create connection between people through gathering and sharing a great pot of tea.



Our Owners

Steep Mountain Tea House is locally owned and operated by Serena Rundberg and Nick Garbiel, owners of Feed Cafe and the Daily Coffee and Eatery.
