Clipper was started in 1984 in the UK, in a Dorset kitchen by a tea-obsessed husband and wife team. They wanted to share their love of great tea with a promise of ethical sourcing and natural production. It was an ethical business from the start and since 1994, Clipper was one of the first three companies in the UK to receive the Fairtrade mark.
The story began with just two chests of finest-quality Assam tea, sold to local health food shops and cafes. Today there are over 150 different Clipper products sold in over 50 countries. We’ve long outgrown the kitchen, but everything at Clipper is still blended in our factory in Beaminster, Dorset UK.
We believe that every cup of tea counts. Our relentless quest for quality and attention to detail is matched only by our desire to always do the right thing. We feel every cup of tea should always be Natural, Fair & Delicious.
So you see, ‘Natural, fair and delicious’ isn’t just a strapline; it’s a guide to every decision we make.
