Ya gotta love a place whose address is on Sleepytime Drive. So no surprise Celestial Seasonings offers tours of its Boulder-based tea production plant. Tours take about 45 minutes and cost $5 per person. After a 13-minute video intro to the history of tea and close-up view of tea processing, you’ll get to walk through the largest, most modern tea factory in the United States. The highlight: a whiff of the Mint Room — guaranteed to clear the sinuses.
Afterward, visit a tea sampling bar with more than 100 kinds of tea.
Do note that children must be age 5 or older to participate in the factory tour. Children under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
