The joy of tea

In the late1960's a small company in Boulder CA started making herbal tea bags. Celestial Seasonings is now a well known company that provides a diverse and healthy selection of teas.  Although they have been acquired by a large food company (the Hain Celestial Group)they became famous for the artwork on their packaging along with inspiring quotes.  I remember cutting little sayings off the boxes and using them for inspiration.  This package, which you may already recognize as the artwork for the Sleepytime Tea is my favorite.  Can you imagine a more peaceful scene?  It doesn't get any better than this.  "Bread and water can so easily be toast and tea."   
On a trip to Denver we visited the headquarters of Celestial Seasonings in Boulder.  A wonderful tour and a visit to the "Mint Room" where bales of peppermint and spearmint leaves create a scent so powerful that Ron's eye watered.  I breathed deep and enjoyed the rich healing property of the herb.
