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.

I love bringing out of town company to Celestial Seasonings to take the tour and stop in the tea shop.

Celestial Seasonings is a perennial favorite to take out of town guests but there's not much to see. The highlight of the tour of course is their 'mint vault' where those spices are segregated from the others because of their pungent strength. The factory tour itself only shows one production line where the tea bags are packaged into boxes. The... More

GREAT place! don't miss the Mint Room. Lovely gift shop, and a wonderful place to take visitors to the area...close to Boulder and Longmont, with a lovely view of the foothills. Never met a crabby employee there yet!

We just went on a tour the day after Thanksgiving. Fantastic tour, but check and make sure the plant is running before you go around the Holidays. Family members loved it - of all ages!!

If you don't know much about tea...or even if you do... this tour is very interesting. What I remember most is the mint room, a place with an overpowering smell of mint. On the tour I learned where many of the teas come from, saw how tea bags are made and learned things about the tea industry in general. At... More

I asked the hotel staff and my local friends if they had ever visited, and none of them had been. I had some extra time before dinner so I drove over by myself. While waiting for the tour you get to sample teas. I definitely discovered some new flavors that I really enjoyed. You start with a short video about... More
