Red Rooster Coffee - Tea - Orange Pekoe Special Assam Tea By Red Rooster - 3.5 oz.

product

STORYarticle-shape

The complex malty flavors and clean finish of this terrific tea are sheer perfection, resulting in a totally satisfying experience. Orange Pekoe Special will keep your train on the tracks all day long. Its burnt sienna color is tinged with copper. This tea is delicious with honey and milk.

Smooth, biscuity, robustly malty, and nutty with a herbaceous aroma

Process

First discovered growing wild in the jungles of the region in the mid 1800’s, Assam is India’s most popular variety. The state of Assam has become the world's largest tea-growing region, lying on either side of the Brahmaputra River, bordering Bangladesh and Myanmar. The daytime temperature rises to about 96.8F creating greenhouse-like conditions of extreme humidity and heat. This tropical climate contributes to Assam's uniquely malty taste, a feature for which this tea is well sought after. Seasonal monsoons flood and replenish the rich bottomland plantations annually, reviving the tea plants for the following season.

Quick Brew

Heat water to 190°–200°F 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.
