Fruit infusions to flirt with…

IMG_0267We strive to always bring our Clipper drinkers the best blends and flavour combinations, packaged in the most beautiful designs.  Sometimes, however, we need help.  And who better to ask than our drinkers!!  So we did…

When we spoke to you, many of you were buying infusions from various brands as you wanted to experiment with different flavours.  However, when you didn’t like one of them you were stuck with it!  You wouldn’t drink it because you didn’t like it, but you didn’t want to throw it away as it was such a waste of money – sometimes up to £4!  So it sat in your cupboard, nearly 20 teabags, untouched for months – go on, check your cupboard, we bet you find an unloved tea in there!

Green Tea Tales from the Tea Guys…

India 2010 358

DSC03799It’s been a busy few months for us here at Clipper, but we like to be kept out of trouble! I spent much of the summer visiting tea estates across India and Sri Lanka, and it’s always lovely to return to the gardens I’ve seen develop over the years. It’s been incredible to witness the impact our Fairtrade contributions make to the people on the ground. We were proudly shown around the new community centre and livestock shed, both paid for with the Fairtrade premium, and making a big difference to the local community.

Making teatime more magical, since 1984…

Our wonderful teapot, lovingly known as ‘Betty’ here at Clipper, has had an amazing summer! She’s sniffed beautiful bouquets at the Hampton Court Flower Show, unleashed her inner bookworm at the Buxton Literary Festival, and hunted for Gromits in Bristol. Then there was the beautiful Bath, where we met some lovely hen parties, the Kingston Food Festival where we got our nibble on, historic Canterbury and blustery Brighton.

This week we finally got to see our amazing new Clipper lorry! We think that anyone on a boring motorway journey will have their travel brightened by this splash of Clipper colour!

And if you’ve ever wondered what those HGVs look like without their clothes on, have a sneaky peak at the tender innards of our lorry…
