The Celestial Seasonings Factory Adventure

Brings new meaning to dressing up for tea
We finally got to go to the Celestial Seasonings Factory in Boulder!  It was so much fun.  The kids even enjoyed it.  I was really excited to find out that you get a discount on the teas.  Plus, all the tea is cheaper than in the grocery store.  Plus, you get an additional 10% off if you buy a case.  It doesn't seem like much, but it really added up for the amount of tea that I bought!  I went crazy, obviously, because I am a tea freak!  I now have enough tea to last me a good year...hopefully.  Otherwise, we are going to go back up to Boulder.  Another really cute thing about the factory was it's street names.  They named the streets after the teas - Sleepytime and Zinger something or other (see picture below).  The tour of the factory was free, and your "ticket" to the tour was a sample of one of the teas.   I thought is was very cute and fun.  We had a really fun time.  I am also really into art and sculpture, and the cafe gallery is filled with all of the artwork and a few tea bag sculptures (pic is below).  There was also free samples of all of the teas that they make.  Any type of tea that you can imagine; white, black, green, red, etc.  Well, technically, it was only all of the teas that they are currently selling.  The gift shop has so many different things for the upcoming holidays as well, and, of course, everything was pretty pricey, but all of the holiday stuff was really neat.  The holiday teas are my favorite, and that is what I stocked up the most of.  The only down side to the tour was the fact that they don't let you take any photography of any kind of inside the factory.

Family picture in the tea garden... awww right?

Another reason we looked really forward to going up there so bad, was because there is this super awesomely delicious pizza that is only up there.  The pizza is a BBQ Chicken pizza from this place called Sun Deli.  When our friend lived up in Boulder, we went to see him, and we ordered the pizza and fell suddenly addicted to it!  So, now, every time we go to Boulder, we have to stop by Sun Deli and get at least one pizza.  We haven't tried any other toppings yet, but maybe we will next time (but I highly doubt it).

Mommy Dearest,

PS I just had to share what we saw outside Sun Deli... no comment required
