Celestial Seasonings Is Schoenberg’s Cup Of Tea

Celestial Seasonings wants to spice up its tea sales, so it is undertaking the most extensive rebranding in its 37-year history. The Boulder, Colo.-based company, which produces more than 90 varieties of natural teas, is unveiling new packaging, a new logo and new products, including an organic premium line, Saphara (MSRP: $7.99).
Celestial also is entering the coffee category with an organic line to launch in October called Morning Thunder.
The rebranding of tea will be supported by an integrated marketing program. Print, the first for the company from TDA Advertising & Design, Boulder, Colo., will break in October magazines such as Real Simple, Food & Wine, Health and Prevention. Support includes Internet, POP and a tie-in with fitness chain Curves, Waco, Texas.
TDA cd Jonathan Schoenberg said, “This is a brand I’ve wanted to work on since I came to Colorado from New York. There is so much potential.”

  1. I think the organic addition was an excellent decision. Green and everything related is definately a money-maker right now.
