About Celestial Seasonings
A Story of People and Passion
In 1969, a group of passionate young entrepreneurs founded Celestial Seasonings upon the belief that their flavorful, all-natural herbal teas could help people live healthier lives. They harvested fresh herbs from the Rocky Mountains by hand, and then dried, blended and packaged them in hand-sewn muslin bags to be sold at local health food stores. By staying committed to their vision, the founders of Celestial Seasonings turned their cottage industry into an almost overnight success.
Today, Celestial Seasonings is the largest specialty tea manufacturer in North America. We serve more than 1.6 billion cups of tea every year, and we source more than 100 different ingredients from over 35 countries to create our delicious, all-natural herbal, green, red, white, chai and wellness teas. But most importantly, we're still about people and passion.
Celestial Seasonings Social Responsibility
Celestial Seasonings was founded in 1969 by a visionary group of young entrepreneurs with an ambitious goal: to make the world a better place by sharing their knowledge of the truly amazing health benefits of herbs. They were determined to find success while making their new company "an example that business can work in peace and harmony with the planet."
Forty years have passed, and Celestial Seasonings remains true to their founders' mission to consistently provide "superior products" that help people live healthier lives, while still maintaining "high ideals" like farmer-friendly trading practices and the use of sustainable materials.
Celestial Seasonings ingredients come from all over the world these days, but their all-natural teas have always been created in their hometown of Boulder, Colorado. Celestial Seasonings passionate employees formulate the recipes, blend the ingredients, design the boxes and package the tea – just like when their founders dried handpicked herbs in a Boulder barn.
Celestial Seasonings commitment to authenticity has made us the largest Specialty Tea manufacturer in the North America, serving more than 1.6 billion cups per year, and one of their very first blends – Sleepytime – is still the most beloved herbal tea in the world. Celestial Seasonings knows that their success is due to the millions of tea enthusiasts who share their belief in the truly original blend of superior products and high ideals that those young entrepreneurs began more than four decades ago.
Celestial Seasonings Recycled Packaging
Celestial Seasonings thinks their boxes are just as important as the goodness they hold, so they always created beautiful packaging adorned with commissioned works of art and thoughtful, inspiring words. But with a tea box that uses 100% recycled paperboard, including 35% post-consumer waste, and can be recycled again when empty, the beauty of their boxes isn't limited to appearances.

Together with the growers – Celestial Seasonings partners in Celestial Seasonings dedication to Ethical Trade – they ensure that the botanicals Celestial Seasonings purchases are brought to market at a price that accurately reflects the cost of labor associated with their production. The assurance of a fair market price nurtures local businesses, creates jobs and empowers their farmers to continue growing their herbs, teas and botanicals for many more years to come.
