Boulder, Colorado: Home of Celestial Seasonings

Celestial Seasonings takes their tea seriously. Hence the hair - and beard! - net during a tour of their facilities, which was really fun and informative.

Did you know that most Celestial Seasonings products aren't actually teas? An herbal tea must have tea in it to be considered a proper tea. Most of the items in the Celestial Seasonings pantheon are actually composed of herbs and roots, and are known as tisanes.

As per Dictionary.com: "ti·sane (t-zn, -zän) n. An herbal infusion or similar preparation drunk as a beverage or for its mildly medicinal effect."

Who knew?!



Note how enjoying the healthful mojo of the Celestial Seasonings gift shop turns a serious expression into one of utter glee!

tisanes, nice sounding word. Had no idea. Never really thought that this (non)tea comes from somewhere.
