Well we are home from our morning out and I'm here to tell you that if you live in our glorious state or visit, going to the Celestial Teas plant in Boulder is something no one should miss. I've mentioned before that going to Boulder takes me right back to my high school and college days of being a hippie and is something I can often do without. I wasn't sure about the company because I knew it had started back in the day by several hippies. Watching the video on how the plant began did indeed take me back to another era but I was so impressed with their philosophy and ethic in the product of their teas. I loved the fact that they are supporting many people and farms in other areas of the world and also their quality control. I've been to "tea parties" that have a very negative view of this company so I always questioned their quality. After today I'll be one who buys there tea on a regular basis-I love their seasonal teas. We couldn't take photos but I did come away not only with a couple of free samples but with a box of a new Christmas tea called Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride and right now I am sipping on a nice cup of it. It is sugar free but takes like a sugar cookie...go figure. I so enjoyed this tour and factory and will be taking others to visit again.
