About Celestial Seasonings
Always True to Their Roots
Back in 1969, Celestial Seasonings did more than just start a tea company. As the original herbal tea company, they started an entirely new way of thinking about tea. In a way, they started a movement – a shift towards healthier, happier little moments carved into ever-busier days. More than 45 years later, they’re still true to those roots. They believe their delicious teas improve people’s lives by inviting balance, and that belief drives their commitment to their customers, community and our planet.
Blended with Care from Seed to Sip
For more than 45 years, Celestial Seasonings has made teas that are good for people and good for the planet. They take many steps to ensure that their teas always taste great and are made with responsibly sourced ingredients.
They select only the highest quality herbs, teas and botanicals that have been grown according to Earth-friendly practices. Their farming partners meet strict standards for purity, quality and consistency by using sustainable agricultural practices that are better for the land, produce better ingredients and result in better teas.
Milling & Blending
Celestial Seasonings' raw materials are cleaned and milled in-house by their own experienced staff. By purchasing their botanicals whole rather than pre-milled, they are better able to test the quality of their raw ingredients to ensure they meet their high standards for purity and quality. Cutting their herbs on-site and at the time of packaging ensures freshness and maximizes flavors.
Expert blending goes into every batch of tea Celestial Seasonings makes. Once their ingredients have been milled, they are blended into recipes formulated by their experienced Product Development team. Every batch of their tea is tested by their Blendmaster, who has 40 years of experience with Celestial Seasonings to ensure each batch matches the “gold standard” for that recipe.
Responsibly Sourced from Around the World
Celestial Seasonings purchases most of their ingredients directly from the farming communities that grow them. All their teas are blended in their hometown of Boulder, Colorado but they source their 100+ botanicals from more than 35 different countries around the world, with 70% of those ingredients purchased directly from the farmers and local communities. Going “straight to the source” whenever possible allows us to select only the highest-quality ingredients and to continually monitor each crop.
Many of Celestial Seasonings' ingredient suppliers have been part of the Celestial Seasonings family for more than 40 years. They buy quantities of fresh crops that will only last until the next harvest and return to the same farming communities year after year.
Quality Ingredients & Testing
They blend their teas from the finest ingredients, with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. All incoming raw ingredients are tested for purity and quality. Celestial Seasonings' rigorously tests their raw materials to ensure that all of their products adhere to strict industry standards and their own “gold standard” for high product quality. Every incoming shipment of ingredients is thoroughly tested. Working with outside experts, they continually evaluate and refine their already stringent testing protocol to address changes in environmental and agricultural practices.
Any raw ingredients that do not meet the standards established by leading government and industry agencies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Union Pharmacopoeia Convention are rejected. In short, Celestial Seasonings believes they have the best, most up-to-date screening process in the industry.
They use tea bags without strings, tags, or staples, keeping tons of material out of landfills every year. The goodness of Celestial Seasonings' packaging matches the goodness found inside. They package their teas in natural fiber, pillow-style tea bags that don’t need a string, tag, staple or individual wrapper. Doing this saves more than 3.5 million pounds of waste from entering landfills each year.
Celestial Seasonings' artful outer boxes are made with 100% recycled paperboard (including 35% consumer waste) that can be recycled again when empty. In addition, they’ve recently reduced the thickness of their plastic outer freshness wrapper to reduce material usage.
