Something is conflicting with my CSS for tooltips

I'm trying to get tooltips to work on this page, but they are not showing up. https://www.stadriemblems.com/products/enamel-pins-test/

I have one inserted above the "Get a Quote Here" h1. The text "Hover Me to Preview" should be showing up.

I have a local VM on my machine, and it's not showing up there either, which makes sense. But when I just double-click the file and view it in the browser outside of the VM, it works (because all of our external assets are loaded dynamically and need the VM to load, so when I just double-click the file and view it in the browser, it's a version without any of the other assets). This leads me to believe that there is some other bit of CSS that's interfering with it. What I can't figure out is how I would go about figuring out what the specific bit of CSS is that's conflicting with it. I did the whole F12/Console thing and did a search for the word "tooltip" (the style/class name) but got no results.

Right now I have the tooltip CSS in the head of this page. I tried moving it to the external style.css to see if it would make a difference, but it did not.

Here is the code:

.tooltip {
    display:inline-block;
    position:relative;
    border-bottom:1px dotted #666;
    text-align:left;
}

.tooltip .top {
    min-width:200px; 
    top:-20px;
    left:50%;
    transform:translate(-50%, -100%);
    padding:10px 20px;
    color:#444444;
    background-color:#EEEEEE;
    font-weight:normal;
    font-size:13px;
    border-radius:8px;
    position:absolute;
    z-index:99999999;
    box-sizing:border-box;
    box-shadow:0 1px 8px rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
    display:none;
}

.tooltip:hover .top {
    display:block;
}

.tooltip .top i {
    position:absolute;
    top:100%;
    left:50%;
    margin-left:-12px;
    width:24px;
    height:12px;
    overflow:hidden;
}

.tooltip .top i::after {
    content:'';
    position:absolute;
    width:12px;
    height:12px;
    left:50%;
    transform:translate(-50%,-50%) rotate(45deg);
    background-color:#EEEEEE;
    box-shadow:0 1px 8px rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
}	
     

Let me know if you need more information. That was a little hard to explain.
