I got in the mood before the tour began driving along Sleeping Time Lane. Got here 45 minutes before the tour and had time for 15 minutes of tasting and then went to the cafe for a cup of soup. Reasonable price cafe for soups and sandwiches. Back to the sample room, there were so many choices with hot pots... More

On Dec. 31rst I attended this wonderful free tour with my family. There were a lot of people and we had to wait about an hour and a half for the next tour. Time went by super quick because you get to try many different kinds of cold teas as well as you can select from a tea menu and... More

I love tea and getting to tour this facility was a treat. We went on a Saturday but the wait was not bad. Once in the factory we went to the mint room-the smell is so strong, so be prepared. The tour ends in the gift shop which is overflowing with cool items. This stop was part of a his... More

We went up to take this tour on a weekend and while the factory usually isn't running the day we went we got lucky and they were in production on that day so we got to see how the packaging process works. The first thing you notice before you even enter the building is the seasoning smell in the air.... More

Free tours are offered on the hour. You may want to arrive at leat 20 min early as we almost had to wait for the next hour's tour. Very interesting to us guys as there is a lot of machinery and warehousing in action. Trust your GPS as you access the factory through a residential area.

When you get there you are able to sample all their teas, all 80 of them, free of charge in unlimited amounts. I had about 10 flavors before I was "tead out". The tour is interesting- guides are friendly. Expect to spend about 45-60 minutes there. 30 for the tour, and 30 for the tea samples/gift shop.

This tour took 45 minutes but show up 15-20 minutes early to sample an abundance of both hot and cold teas and kombucha. If you don't see the tea you'd like to sample, just ask, you can request any tea you would enjoy tasting. Once you satisfy your taste buds, head on into the tour starting with a video of... More

On a short trip to Denver, and en route to explore the Rocky Mountain Park, we decided to take a mini detour to visit this factory. As a tea lover, this was a fun mini-trip. We went on a weekend, so the factory machines weren't actually in production, but having just done a different factory tour, it in some respects... More

Took the tour of the tea factory. Got to see how the teas are prepared for packaging, went into the Mint Room. There is a nice gift shop after tour. Nice small cafe on site.
