As an avid tea drinker I knew that when we visited Boulder we must stop ate the Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory. All I can say is that this attraction exceeded my expectations and a good time was had by all, including the non-tea drinkers.
The tour starts out in the tea tasting room and ends in the gift shop. The tea tasting room is a wonderful place to explore while waiting for your tour to start as it has some history of the company and some great things to look out like a dress made out of teabags while you can sit and sip as many different types of tea as you would like, both hot and iced. They also have samples of teas that are not even on the marketplace yet.
Next you start your tour by watching a brief video about the origins of tea and the Celestial Seasonings Company before taking an hour walking tour of the factory. The tour includes the tea processing rooms where you see how they process the tea from the raw bags to make your favorite blends. Next you go through the storage room and then the mint room (which is the best) before you go to the factory and packaging parts. It was a great and informative tour and I would recommend it to anyone who visits Boulder!
