You may know that Celestial Seasonings is the largest manufacturer and marketer of specialty teas in North America. We invite you to learn more about who we are as the makers of your favorite teas.
Celestial Seasonings has a rich history starting with Mo Siegel gathering herbs in the mountains of Colorado and continuing with our merger with The Hain Food Group to create The Hain Celestial Group. To give you a sense of perspective, we've created a timeline showing the most important landmarks in the life of our company.
In 1969, a group of passionate young entrepreneurs founded Celestial Seasonings upon the principles of promoting a healthy lifestyle with flavorful herbal teas, which to that point had only been viewed as medicinal. The herbs were harvested by hand in the Rocky Mountains, and then dried and packaged in hand-sewn muslin bags and sold to local health food stores. By staying committed to their vision, the founders of Celestial Seasonings turned their cottage industry into an almost overnight success.
Since day one, Celestial Seasonings has always been about people and passion. The founders hoped to foster the values of beauty and truth through their products and their distinctive packaging. They wanted the tea drinking experience to fulfill all the senses, and committed to featuring specially designed artwork and carefully researched words of wisdom on each package to complement our delicious flavors and aromas. That vision lives on today, even as our product line has extended beyond tea to coffee and culinary spices.
