The Eco Coffee Company are proud to supply A World First…

Plastic-Free

Non GM

Unbleached Teabag

Clipper Teas have moved their entire production to the World’s first plastic-free, unbleached, non-GM tea bag paper. And they are not going back!

Tea, as it should naturally be…

Clipper is dedicated to bringing you delicious teas that are beautiful inside and out. We consider everything from the sourcing of all of our ingredients, where the tea comes from, to the way we blend and pack it; whilst always upholding our policy of ‘no artificial ingredients’.

We have led the way in organic, green and white teas, non-chemical decaffeination, becoming the UK’s 1st Fairtrade tea brand and of course championing the very recognisable unbleached tea bag.

Even though it’s what’s on the inside that counts, it’s good to know we’ve thought of every little detail.

Our Story…

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 focussed obsessively on what’s inside the bag. The result? A range of teas that were brighter, bolder and better-tasting.


FRIENDS OF FAIRTRADE

‘Taste’ alone has never been enough for us. We saw it as our duty to improve the lives of the workers on the tea estates. So we became the UK’s first Fairtrade tea company. And we decided never to add anything artificial to our drinks. Ever.

NATURAL, FAIR AND DELICIOUS…

Our relentless quest for quality and attention to detail was matched only by our tireless desire to surprise and delight. Together this forms the spirit of Clipper – and it’s as true today as it always has been. So you see, ‘natural, fair and delicious’ isn’t just a strapline; it’s a guide to every single decision we make.
