“If you are in Boulder try and visit this place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

We were in Boulder and decided to visit celestial seasoning factory. It was a good trip for us as they were offering samples of all the varities of tea they house. We tried at least 10 different types before decideing to buy a few. The cost of buying was also much cheaper (20-25%) than in retail stores. We also had a factory tour. They showed us a video clip for 15 minutes, which was followed by a guided tour of the factory. Since we visited on a Sunday they did not have any machines in operation. Anyways, it was still OK becuase the actual tea is not made in the US but they import them from various countires like China, India, Brazil....and some countries in Africa. The only carry out packaging in the US and we have been told that Boulder is the only place where it happens for the celestial seasonings. Hope you get luck and get to try different blends of tea.

“Okay for a Saturday”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Be forewarned, if you go on the tour on Sat or Sun, there will be no production going on. That means it is far less noisey, but also (in my opinion) less interesting. They do hawk the products a lot but kind of expected that. The guide was knowledgable and chatty. She did try hard to make it fun. This is a fun family activity. But try to go avoid the weekend. :)

“Interesting, great fun, lovely teas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

I have been taking the Celestial Tea tour for over ten years and though it has evolved, it is always a good time. The story of the company traces it's roots from hippies gathering herbs on the hillsides of Boulder to the present where Celestial is part of a large corporation. The best part of the tour for me is the mint room - a surprising experience! The cafeteria has great food if you're hungry (and it's open) while you are there. And the gift shop has a wide variety of teas and other items including things from other small area companies (ie. Hammonds Candy). This is great for locals and tourists alike!

Very interesting. Great gift shop. We took and learned a good deal. Right down the street from this is the Leaning Tree Museum, which is great too.
