Clipper was started in 1984 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.
The story began with just two chests of finest-quality Assam tea, sold to local health food shops and cafes.
In 1994 we became the UK’s first Fairtrade tea company. We even helped to write the Fairtrade Standards.
Today there are over 150 different Clipper products sold in over 50 countries. Everything Clipper is still blended in our factory in Beaminster, Dorset.
