Celestial Seasonings Tea shop

I am visiting the Boulder, CO area for some vacation with my sister's family. Yesterday we went to visit the Celestial Seasonings manufacturing Plant and shop. It is a fantastic place to sip away - tasting all of their different flavors. Iced or hot, fruity or spicy - it is all there for the tasting.

While one is sipping, one can also look at some great original artwork that was done for their packaging and promotional materials, a collection of original teapots done for a contest they once held, and a dress made out of their tea packages! All very fun.

I didn't realize that this company was also responsible for the line of TERRA veggie chips(one of my fav snacks). However, they don't "sample" those!

In the section about the history of their company, they still had the original Singer sewing machine with which the tea bags were sewn. Fun to see the humble beginnings.

If you are ever in the area, and have viewed all the natural beauty of the area, I would heartily recommend this as a refreshing stop.
