Description

If you have visited our Tucson area you may have been intrigued by the seemingly
erratic growth of the prickly pear cactus, with its pads protruding at all angles;
or you may have avoided it because of its sharp, barbed spines and tiny stickers.
However; everyone can appreciate the prickly pear's large but delicate colorful blooms
and the sweet, succulent fruit.
Over a period of several weeks in late spring and early summer, each pad produces
several three-to-four-inch wide flowers that bloom in an array of colors, depending on the variety,
from subtle to brilliant tones of yellows and oranges, pinks and reds.
When the blooms fade, the edible fruits form and harvest begins. This is the basis of our extract
that infuses our China Black FOP tea and gives you the delicious flavor without
the stickers or barbs.

Legend

Up until the close of the Civil war, coffee was sold green. It had to be roasted on a wood stove or in a skillet over a campfire before it could be ground and brewed. One burned bean ruined all; there was no consistency.

In 1865 John Arbuckle and his brother Charles, partners in a Pittsburgh grocery business, changed all this by patenting a process for roasting and coating coffee beans with an egg and sugar glaze to seal in the flavor and aroma.

Marketed under the name ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE in patented, airtight, one pound packages, the new coffee was an instant success with chuck wagon cooks in the west faced with the task of keeping Cowboys supplied with plenty of hot coffee out on the range. ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE packages bore a yellow label with the name ARBUCKLES’ in  large red letters across the front, beneath which flew a Flying Angel trademark over the words ARIOSA COFFEE in black letters. Shipped all over the country in sturdy wooden crates, one hundred packages to a crate, ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE became so dominant in the west that many Cowboys  were  not  aware  there  was  any other  brand.  

Keen  marketing  minds, the Arbuckle Brothers printed signature coupons on the bags of coffee redeemable for all manner of notions including handkerchiefs, razors, scissors and wedding rings. To sweeten the deal, each package of ARBUCKLES’ contained a stick of peppermint candy. Due to the demands on chuck wagon cooks to keep ready supplies of hot ARBUCKLES’ on hand around the campfire, the peppermint stick became a means by which that steady coffee supply was ground. Upon hearing the cook’s call, “Who wants the candy?” some of the toughest Cowboys on the trail were known to vie for the opportunity of manning the coffee grinder in exchange for satisfying a sweet tooth. 

Today thanks to the folks at ARBUCKLE, the Cowboys’ favorite, ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE, is available once more. Complete with the original Flying Angel trade mark, these one pound packages of rich beans are every inch the full-bodied, aromatic coffee you get from ARBUCKLES’.  There’s even a stick of peppermint inside each bag! No longer just a fond memory for a dwindling breed of old-time cowmen, ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE is back as good as ever.

My husband drinks 12oz of this tea everyday. This tea works awesome for carpal tunnel, and arthritis in his hands and wrist. We were buying this tea from another company, but they no longer carry this tea. I bought 3 lbs. so I got free shipping! Glad I found Arbuckle will continue to purchase from them.
