With a history dating back decades, Clipper considers itself ‘a different kind of tea company’. A claim we’re inclined to agree with; especially considering the incredible commitment Clipper demonstrates to ethical and responsible sourcing.

Clipper differs from your average tea company in that it is, always has been, and always will be a pure passion project. Started in 1984 by a tea-obsessed husband and wife in a small kitchen in Dorset; Clipper now supplies sustainable teas to customers in more than 50 countries worldwide.

But while the company may have grown beyond the confines of the kitchen it was born in, its commitment to doing things differently for the benefit of all involved is as strong as it has ever been.

Natural, Fair and Delicious - The Clipper Way

“If you think bleaching tea bags is weird, have more mugs than shoes and believe fair tea is the best tea, then you’re our cup or tea – and we’re yours! Generation Tea is a tribe of tea lovers who care about making a difference to the world just as much as they look forward to making Friday night Chamomile night!” - Clipper

Clipper differentiates itself from comparable tea producers by focusing on more than quality and taste alone. The company’s founders firmly believe that every cup of tea consumed worldwide (which is a lot!) represents an important opportunity to support both the planet and its people.

That’s why Clipper affirms its commitment to the cause with a three-way pledge - ‘Natural, Fair and Delicious’.

Firstly, there’s nothing that goes into a Clipper tea bag that isn’t 100% organic. No pesticides, no chemicals and nothing synthetic - all responsibly sourced organic ingredients from trusted partners worldwide.

Speaking of which, Clipper is the largest Fair Trade tea brand in the world. They actively support more than 114,000 producers and the people in their localities.

Of course, the fabulous flavour of Clipper tea has also played a major role in cementing the company’s stellar reputation. Only the finest teas are used to create Clipper’s exclusive blends, painstakingly refined for a beautiful brew, every time!

Why We Love Clipper

From the humblest of origins, Clipper has grown into a global leader of the organic beverage industry. Incredibly, the company now produces more than 1 billion teabags each year - all from its native Dorset and shipped to millions of customers worldwide.

At Wholefoody, we love Clipper for the clear passion and attention to detail that goes into each and every bag. Knowing you’re supporting good causes around the world with every cup, there’s a feel-good factor to the whole thing that makes Clipper tea taste even better. Not to mention, the fact that they’re constantly introducing new and exciting blends to keep things fresh and interesting!
