held on what is expected to be the busiest shopping day of the year, giving
weary shoppers a bit of over-the-top, warming, outdoor fun.

               highlight of this wintertime outdoor tea party. Guests warm up

               readings and "tea off" at mini golf to win prizes. Costumed
               characters entertain the crowd while Celestial Seasonings' tea
               blendmaster reveals secrets of the tea trade through tales of

    As guests warm up with steaming cups of complimentary Celestial
Seasonings tea, they can see their future in tea leaves at the tea leaf
reading station or try their hand at the "Tea-Off", where a hole-in-one nets
cool tea prizes. The guest of honour will be the World's Largest Tea Bag.
Taller than a pickup truck, this 12 foot x 12 foot stunner will mark a new
world record for biggest tea bag. Celestial Seasonings' senior blendmaster,
Charlie Baden, will regale guests with secrets of the global tea trade, from
plant to cup. The famous Sleepytime Tea bear will be at the party with a
friend from the fantastical world created on Celestial Seasonings' iconic
packaging. The Tea Association will be on hand to discuss the role tea plays
in maintaining good health, and donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation
are encouraged.
