About Celestial Seasonings®

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 one of the largest specialty tea manufacturers 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.

The Celestial Seasonings® Difference

At Celestial Seasonings®, we are committed to providing the highest quality, most environmentally responsible product possible. We know that you are concerned about what you and your family eat and drink, so we want you to know what makes Celestial Seasonings® teas so different.

Quality

Quality herbal teas start with quality herbs and spices. Celestial Seasonings® purchases more than 100 varieties of the finest quality herbs, spices and fruits from more than 35 different countries to make our enchanting teas. Each herb and spice has its own flavour and taste characteristics and creates delicious natural taste treats when blended.

All Natural Legacy

Part of the Celestial Seasonings® mission is to be an active participant in making the world a better place. The extensive use of environmentally conscious products, manufacturing processes, packaging materials and company-wide recycling programs distinguishes Celestial Seasonings® as a truly all-natural company.

Celestial Seasonings® products are made with all-natural raw materials and ingredients of the highest quality, and are free of preservatives and artificial colourings and flavourings.

Environmentally Conscious Packaging

Responsible Paper Consumption. Celestial Seasonings® uses as little packaging as possible for our products.The Company’s unique pillow tea bag requires no strings, tags, staples, individual overwrapping or foil envelopes. This practice saves over 1,500 tons of waste from entering landfills each year.

The bags are packaged in cardboard boxes made from 100% recycled paperboard, and the paperboard is made from at least 35% post-consumer waste material. The boxes include resealable interior liners that keep the all-natural teas fresh from the first bag to the last.

Sustainable Sourcing

The Celestial Seasonings® team of botanical buyers travels the world to meet with family farmers and tea estate managers who produce teas, herbs and spices, and promote economic growth through socially conscious and environmentally sustainable production. To conserve natural resources, plant products are grown on small farms within their indigenous areas. This ensures that the plant products Celestial Seasonings buys are collected or harvested without undue harm to the environment, while local jobs and businesses are supported.

A Consistent Cup of Tea

The Celestial Seasonings® Blendmaster blends like ingredients (from different lots) and adjusts formulas to achieve a consistent balance in each batch. All potential ingredients our suppliers offer are tasted, and 90% of all samples are rejected because they do not meet Celestial Seasonings® high quality standards. For consumers, this means no matter what favourite tea they buy, it will have the same quality and taste from one cup to the next.
