From fresh harvested herbs from the Rocky Mountains to the steaming mug of tea you hold while curled up on the couch, Celestial Seasonings has come a long way since 1969. The first production facility was established in a barn in Boulder in 1970, and now they have a full fledged production facility that offers tours and serves more than 1.6 billion cups of tea every year.
If you arrive for the tour early, you can take advantage of plenty of free tea tastings to find your favorite and enjoy the unique variety of tea pots on display. When making their wide variety of teas, Celestial Seasonings uses over 100 herbs, teas, spices, and botanicals from more than 35 different countries. They make it a point to maintain long-term personal relationships with each and every farmer and community they work with.
Unfortunately there was no picture taking allowed on this tour, but all the more reason for you to go check it out for yourself! Best of all… it’s a free tour! And you get to wear the cool hair nets like in the photo below. Brandon wasn’t quite as excited as I was about it 🙂 If you do get the chance to visit, make sure to bring this coupon with you for a free box of tea!
