First, I had no idea that Boulder was the home to Celestial Seasonings. The cost is reasonable. Your "ticket" is actually a package of 3 tea bags. The tour starts with a quick video of their history and then you actually go out into the factory and see and smell things in action. Quite the experience. This factory is not... More

Went to this place after doing the Leanin' Tree tour a few blocks away. The weather was crummy so it was a perfect day to stay indoors. Started by having lunch in the Celestial Cafe. They had cafeteria style meals and sandwiches which were decent. Next was Tea Sampling in the tea room. There were about 4 ice teas and... More

We did the tea factory tour this past Saturday(11/8). Once we signed up for the tour we were given our tour tickets and given a cup to start sampling. It was pretty fun being able to try a bunch of different flavors of tea. Our tour was packed, being that it was Saturday afternoon. It was a little hard to... More

I did this tour 12 years ago. This time it was so great. Tried a bunch of teas and everyone was so polite. I love the history. Im definitely taking my family next trip.

My husband and I have taken this factory tour several times - most recently October 27, 2014. Always interesting and entertaining. I mean seriously who wouldn't enjoy hairnets (for those special guests - beard-nets) and teabag tour tickets. From humble beginnings to a nationally / internationally recognized brand makes you believe in the American dream. Tea tasting before or after... More

Take out of town visitors here and used to live down the street - a great historical tour of an iconic Boulder business - you get to hear great stories, breath in great smells and see all the cool little workings of a factory packing operation. The gift shop is terrific as well - good for adults and children alike!

Really enjoyed this tour and found out a lot about the different teas and herbs used in them. The information about the packaging was interesting too. The film was a perfect length and our tour guide was nice and friendly. The gift shop is one of the best I have ever been in. I could have done all my Christmas... More

The tour is fun and you get a chance to learn a lot about the product. We've been taking out-of-town guests for years. It's really dependent upon whom you have guiding you, though, and whether the factory is up and running. The mint room is always great and the gift shop is quite expanded with many products other than tea.... More

Interesting tour to see, and hear, about the teas that Celestial Seasonings sells. You get to walk through the factory and the guide explains all about the teas that are sold; how they are selected, stored, and combined to make some great teas. You even get to taste many of their teas. If you are sensitive to certain types of... More

I have been on this tour many times. I was fortunate to come here my first time many years ago when we first moved to Colorado, but I keep coming back! I have taken so many of our family and friends that visit us for a tour here, as well. I never get tired of coming. This family fun tour... More
