Before Clipper, the world of tea looked very different. Back then, people didn’t think too hard about what was inside the bag. In the UK, tea was tea. It came in a cup with milk. And sugar. Often too much. Then, in 1984, along came our founders, Mike and Lorraine – two tea fanatics, determined to change the world of tea forever.
And so Clipper was born. Guided by our mantra, ‘It’s what’s on the inside that counts’, we focused obsessively on what’s inside the bag. The result? A range of teas that were brighter, bolder and better-tasting.
One of our guiding principles, is of course, taste. We are in no doubt that our Fairtrade Everyday Tea is the best-tasting conventional tea you can buy – not just the best Fairtrade tea. Over the years we have introduced organic tea, coffee, green and white tea and some beautiful fruit and herbal infusions.
