Product Description

About the Brand

In 1969, 19-year-old Mo Siegel and his friend Wyck Hay found a bountiful harvest of wild herbs growing around Boulder, Colorado. With friends and wives helping, they picked the herbs and produced 500 pounds of their first blend, called MO's 36 Herb Tea. It was packaged in hand-sewn muslin bags and sold to a local health food store. Hay's brother, John, joined the partnership in 1971. The entrepreneurs set up shop in an old barn outside of Boulder, and they expanded their market to stores throughout Colorado, New Mexico, and the East Coast. The partners also began buying herbs rather than picking everything themselves, and the dream of a national herb tea company slowly began to materialize. This dream was reinforced when Red Zinger Herb Tea was introduced in January 1972 and was an immediate sensation. It remains one of the best-selling Celestial teas.

The company continued to grow and revolutionize the tea industry. Herb teas had previously been perceived as only of medicinal significance, but Celestial Seasonings introduced herb teas as flavorful, healthy beverages, virtually creating the modern tea industry. Celestial Seasonings solidified its sources for obtaining ingredients, such as hibiscus flowers and chamomile, by working closely with herb farmers from the Pacific Northwest to the exotic Far East. This forward thinking attracted the attention of food industry giant Kraft, Inc., which bought Celestial Seasonings in 1984. Kraft's guidance brought Celestial Seasonings to the attention of new consumers, further strengthening its lead in the herb tea industry while also introducing a gourmet line of traditional, or black, teas. In September 1988, Kraft sold Celestial Seasonings back to its management, returning the tea company to independent ownership. The company remains headquartered in Boulder, in the corporate facility on Sleepytime Drive.

The company, in 1991, experienced the exciting return of its original founder and leader, Mo Siegel, as chairman and chief executive officer. Since then, the company has expanded upon its herbal expertise bringing to market successful lines of Green, Wellness, Organic, and Chai teas. In 2000, Celestial joined forces with the Hain Food Group, maker of many top-selling natural foods brands. Today, serving more than 1.2 billion cups of tea per year, Celestial Seasonings is the largest herb tea manufacturer in North America and is expanding internationally at a rapid rate. Assured of Celestial Seasonings leadership position in the herb tea industry, Mo retired in September 2002 to fulfill another dream: to finish hiking the last set of 14,000-foot Colorado mountains he has yet to climb.

Honeybush is a naturally peppery and flowery version of Rooibos. I like that the added flavorings don't overwrite the natural flavor of honeybush, but only compliment it.

I knew this awful day would come eventually and it has arrived. I went to the Celestial Seasonings site today and saw the dreaded word - my favorite tea in the whole world had been DISCONTINUED. I've been drinking this wondrous tea nearly every day since they first put it out years ago. It's helped lift my spirits on the most stressful days and through countless diets. On sweltering summer days, it was THE most refreshing iced tea ever. Even my sister, who hates everything, said: "hey, that's not bad," huge praise from her. How sad to think about being without that lovely taste, beautiful color, orange box, giraffe. Goodbye Peach Apricot Honeybush, my dear friend....my God, I'm going to miss you.

Outstanding as iced tea, sweetened before chilling. Perfect for a warm summer day out on the lawn.

when I gave up caffeine I went looking for an herbal tea that would most satisfy my need for a hot, stimulating drink. This is surely the one! If you need to get away from coffee or just want to try something other than Sleepytime then get the Peach Apricot Honeybush. You won't be disappointed. No over-powering fruitiness or sweetness. Also you might like Red Safari Spice. Yum.

This by far is my favorite bagged tea. I drink it hot. You can really smell and taste the Peach/Apricot with slight sweetness of honey. I think Celestial Seasonings used to have another one called Apricot something but has been discountinued. I am so glad that this replaces it and is actually even better!
