A scathing new report on Celestial Seasonings teas and parent company Hain Celestial, shows 91% of the samples of Celestial Seasonings teas tested contained pesticides in levels that exceed U.S Federal limits. High pesticides in 91% of samples 10 out of 11 varieties of Celestial Seasonings teas, one of the largest specialty tea manufacturers in North America, were found to contain excess pesticides including Antioxidant Max Blood Orange and Sleepytime Kids Goodnight Grape. From great beginnings... Started in 1969, Celestial Seasonings was "founded on the belief that all-natural herbal teas could help people live healthier lives." However, the tests conducted by EuroFins, a leading independent analytic testing company, determined that many varieties of Celestial Seasonings teas contained potentially dangerous levels of multiple pesticides.
Teavana is a company that sells loose tea for top price. It has also long claimed to be "pesticide-free," or organic or "European organic." The Teavana tea that I have sampled also tastes great
The lab results for this company were not great, unfortunately. The tea was tested by an independent lab and 100 percent of it was found to contain pesticides. One tea, Monkey Picked Oolong, contained 23 pesticides. Strike one.
For more than 40 years, we've made all-natural teas that are good for our people and good for our planet. The philosophy of doing business in ways that are both people-friendly and planet-friendly is known as corporate social responsibility, and it is at the very core of the Celestial Seasonings story. We’ve always made doing business the right way a priority – from our humble beginnings in a Boulder barn to today serving more than 1.6 billion cups of tea per year.
