Celestial Seasonings Free Tour
In 1969, a group of passionate young entrepreneurs founded Celestial Seasonings upon the belief that their flavorful, all-natural herbal teas could help people live healthier lives. They harvested fresh herbs from the Rocky Mountains by hand, and then dried, blended and packaged them in hand-sewn muslin bags to be sold at local health food stores. By staying committed to their vision, the founders of Celestial Seasonings turned their cottage industry into an almost overnight success. Today, Celestial Seasonings is one of the largest specialty tea manufacturers in North America. We serve more than 1.6 billion cups of tea every year, and we source more than 100 different ingredients from over 35 countries to create our delicious, all-natural herbal, green, red, white, chai and wellness teas. But most importantly, we're still about people and passion.
We come here every year! The shop is great and the tour is awesome. My kids love the tour (though it is for ages 6+). The tasting room is great and very comfy when it is not busy. The cafe is great, but only open weekdays. The shop has great discounts on tea as well as gifts and all sorts of other things. We always enjoy our time here.
The factory itself is small and the tour is short, but it's still a great place to visit and go through the experience. It's an authentic working factory with all the noise and dust you would expect from a modern production facility, but you can see the dedication and love that goes into their teas. Get there early to enjoy the waiting area to sample teas and make time to explore the gift shop at the end of the tour - lots of neat stuff that will make you feel good.
Not toddler friendly. The staff pretty much kicked us out as my godchild (2) was in the store supervised by her mom and I and told us it wasn’t safe for her to be there. She could swallow small things. Being a nurse and supervising the child along with mom, I assured her we had it covered and she still was rude. I’m not happy with this place any longer and will not be back...
Took my granddaughters, they enjoyed tasting the tea, nice touch, the ceramic cups. We all enjoyed the tour. The tour guide, wish I could remember her name, was very nice and knowledgeable. The gift shop was awesome and very reasonable.
Tours start at 10 but we didn't get to tour until 11am. It seems that the doors open earlier and begin taking requests so get there early. If you do have to wait there is tea tasting and a fantastic gift shop with cheap tea for sale. They will mail your purchase via FedEx ground for a fee. If you still have extra time, walk out front and watch the very entertaining Prairie dogs. Unfortunately, the factory wasn't running the day we visited but it was still a great tour. Don't miss out.
