Red Rooster Coffee - Tea - Cripple Creek Ceylon By Red Rooster - 3 oz.

product

STORYarticle-shape

You've never tasted a Ceylon quite like Cripple Creek. Wonderfully bright, whole leaf plucks are expertly hand picked and carefully protected throughout their journey from Sri Lanka to your cup. You’ll taste the difference.

Bright copper, slightly metallic, briskly astringent, but not particularly tannic

Process

Tea in Sri Lanka is often cultivated using a contour planting, where tea bushes are planted on terraces that follow the topography of the land, much like vineyards in Italy. The side leaves, which have the flavor and aroma, are skillfully plucked by hand. Sri Lanka is one of the few countries where each tea leaf is picked by hand rather than by mechanization. This allows the whole leaf to be removed from the stem and care is given throughout the processing to ensure our Cripple Creek Ceylon comes to the customer that way. You’ll taste the difference.

QUICK BREW

Heat water to 190ºF - 200ºF 1 tsp/8 fl.oz. 4-6 minutes

Taking Good Care of Our Coffee, Our People, Our Farmers, Our Planet

Established in 2010 in downtown Floyd, VA (pop 432), Red Rooster was created with the simple notion of roasting excellent coffee for the owner’s existing coffee house. Soon, word of Red Rooster's quality spread around Virginia and up and down the East Coast.

Today, we employ 30 people while roasting some of the best coffee in the world. We are also the only coffee company in the country with a licensed on-site childcare facility for our employee's children.

While we've won numerous awards and accolades for our coffee quality, our true passion is in making a positive social impact both at home and abroad at the coffee's origin.
