If you have not been yet, or in a while, we would like to invite you to tour their amazing facility and sample the freshest teas the world has to offer!
Celestial Seasonings was created by small group of passionate people who believed that you could improve your health and life through the use of all natural teas and herbs. Initially, they selected and harvested local herbs right from the Rockies and manufactured by hand a superior product that was then sold to local health food stores and markets. Now they travel the world to bring the finest and freshest ingredients to every cup of tea they produce. The global diversity of this once small cottage Boulder business has enabled the company, as a whole, to pave new paths in the herbal tea and health food industry. With a huge variety, that includes more than 100 natural botanicals, the everyday person can experience tastes and flavors that cross oceans and transcend cultures.
Although the company has become one of the largest specialty tea manufacturers in North America, serving more than 1.6 billion cups of tea each year, they hold true to their Boulder roots.
