Celestial Seasonings to launch Twitter 'Tea Time' sessions

BOULDER, Colo. — Celestial Seasonings is bringing its Sleepytime bear to life with weekly Twitter sessions called "Tea Time with Sleepytime Bear."

Beginning Dec. 14, a different Celestial Seasonings tea will serve as "sponsor" for the weekly, hour-long Twitter "Tea Time" session, enabling online users to learn about the all-natural varieties of Celestial Seasonings tea, including herbal, green, white, red, chai and wellness. The sessions will take place every Tuesday at 1 p.m. MST.

The new initiative is part of the Celestial Seasonings' social media strategy. The company recently launched a Facebook fan page for Sleepytime bear.
