Clipper Teas

About Clipper Teas

Clipper was started in 1984 in the United Kingdom, 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.

None of Clipper Tea products contain anything artificial. They never will. Their tea bags are plastic-free, non-GMO and unbleached. Clipper is constantly working on ways to be greener, from production to packaging.
