Clipper was started in 1984 in a Dorset kitchen by a tea-obsessed husband and wife team close to us in Somerset. Clipper is the world’s largest buyer of Fairtrade tea, supporting over 114,000 producers and their families around the globe. Clipper were the world’s first tea company to switch to Plant-Based, Biodegradable, non-GM and unbleached tea bags. Every Clipper blend is made to be the best quality tea it can be. Tea blending is like an alchemy using the different teas from different origins to make a blend truly special, and, like wine, tea gets its unique characteristics from the soil and the climate unique to where it’s grown.
Clipper is fiercely committed to being organic and anything new made will be organic certified. This corresponds to Fragrant Earth's own policy. Guided by their organic principles, They are committed to being GM-free and will only use ingredients from non-GM sources. Clipper actively discourage the use of chemicals such as pesticides amongst their growers, which they believe gives better tea that’s better for the environment.
