This light, delicious and highly refreshing organic tea is made from the buds and young leaves of the tea bush. It is sourced from the Fujian Province in south east China, the traditional home of white tea, which is symbolised by the lovely dragon on this pack.
White tea has a very refined and subtle, but deliciously rounded, flavour. Young leaf buds are gently oxidised to create a clean and healthy drink that is a powerful source of natural antioxidants.
About Clipper Tea
Clipper Tea offers a family of fairtrade and organic beverages, including black teas, herbal teas, fruit infusions and hot chocolate.
Set up in the UK in 1984, Clipper Tea aims to change the world of tea with the motto, EEItEEs whatEEs on the inside that counts.EE Its tea masters travel the world to work with growers from the best tea gardens in India, Sri Lanka and Africa to source, select and blend products. Their aim is that every product attains the companyEEs standard of being EEnatural, fair and delicious.EE
The company works solely with producers who are striving to improve standards of welfare for workers and their families. Through fair trade, Clipper Tea supports tea producers and surrounding communities, by paying a fair price for their tea, as well as a fair trade premium which can be invested into the business or community. This premium is often spent on improving local infrastructure and supporting community projects, such as roads, schools and medical resources.
In 1994, Clipper Tea became the UKEEs first “pany. The products contain no artificial ingredients and each teabag is unbleached, as nature intended. Many products are also naturally caffeine-free or, in the case of Assam Blend, caffeineless, having undergone a non-chemical decaffeination using carbon dioxide.
