Clipper Fans Love Poems

I have been a fan for many years,
enjoyed a cup over laughs and tears,
Your white tea is by far the best,
or some orange and coconut when I need some zest,
chamomile to calm my jitters,
you sure can tell I’m a Clipper Sipper,
such a comforting fairtrade blend,
I will be a Clipper fan til the end!
- Laura Olivia Tonks
