All About Assam

There has been a lot of interest from you, our lovely tea drinkers, about the gardens we buy our tea from in Assam.

Located in the north-east of India, Assam is one of the World’s most famous tea producing regions. Assam covers the Brahmaputra valley which reaches from the Himalayas down to the Bay of Bengal. It’s one of the most biodiverse areas on the planet and home to some unique plants and animals, including rare orchids and the one-horned Indian rhino. It’s also one of the last wild habitats of the Asian Elephant. Due to increased environmental awareness and more sustainable tea growing methods, particularly for Organic tea gardens, local flora and wildlife is thriving.

The Importance of Transparency

Assam is, however, one of the poorest regions in the world and many people find employment within the tea industry.

Tea is a very labour intensive product to produce and workers are employed for tasks such as plucking, weeding, pruning and composting - as well as working in the factories to process the teas. More than 80% of tea pickers in Assam are women.

We believe that providing transparency on where we source our tea from will help build a more sustainable supply chain by empowering all stakeholders in the tea industry - from producers to workers to civil groups.

We recognise the size of the challenge but by sharing this information we hope to show how important it is for us to work only with progressive tea estates who look to improve the quality of life for their workers and their families.

Tasting Notes

Heavy rainfalls and high humidity means that the soil in the Brahmaputra Valley is rich and fertile and is perfect for growing some of the best teas in the World. Only tea grown in the Brahmaputra Valley is truly Assam.

Assam tea is world-famous for its big, rich & malty character which makes it perfect for our signature Everyday tea blends.

With love from Clipper!

We've gone a bit bonkers at Clipper HQ and decided we wanted to share the love with our lovely Clipper tea drinkers out there! We’ve created 3 Limited Edition tea caddies and each comes FREE with our special packs of Fairtrade Everyday Tea, Organic Everyday Tea and Pure Green tea (80 tea bags).

We’ve also made thousands of unbleached Clipper tea-towels and popped them into other packs of our Fairtrade Everyday Tea (80 bags). There are 4 different designs to look out for. And if that wasn’t enough, we’ve only gone and put 100% more tea bags into boxes of our Pure Green Tea 26  Bags – yes we’ve squeezed 52 bags in there!

Read more about which gifts we’ll be bestowing by clicking on the images below.

All this Clipper loveliness will be in supermarkets from the end of October.
