When Theodore Estabrooks founded Red Rose in the 1890s, tea was sold loose from tea chests and its quality was wildly inconsistent. Recognizing that tea drinkers deserved something better, he dedicated himself to producing a quality blended tea that was consistent from cup to cup. For over 125 years, we’ve kept that promise. We’re committed to providing you with a perfectly balanced, great-tasting tea.


Over 300 employees come together to craft full-bodied, rich tea blends made for the tea lover with the same care that Theodore Harding Estabrooks established more than a century ago. We’re passionate about continuing the Red Rose tradition and sharing our love of tea with you.
