Celestial Seasonings herbal tea

I just returned from a 3-week road trip. Among the places visited was a free tour of Celestial Seasonings' factory near Boulder, Colorado. Very interesting, good fun. A wholesome company worth supporting.

Trivia: After tea leaves, what is the most common ingredient in their dried herbal beverage packets? Hint: China & Egypt are among their main sources.

My mom has to have her Celestial Seasonings Sleepy Time tea every evening after dinner. She's been drinking it for years and years.

Noodle's got it. It's hibiscus. Dried fruits lose its tartness, and dried hibiscus gives it back.

while you are up in that neck of the woods and want to do foodie tours, try Cheese Importers in Longmont.
I love Hibiscus!
