Why does Clipper Green Tea taste so good?
We thought we’d reveal why at Clipper we’re so Natural, Fair and Delicious...
Unbleached Tea Bags
Some companies bleach their tea bags because they think they look nicer when they’re brighter. The process typically requires either the use of Chlorine Dioxide or a combination of Peroxide, Ozone and Oxygen.
At Clipper we don’t think the bleaching process is necessary! That’s why our tea bags are a natural, woody colour.
No Artificial Flavourings:
Some manufacturers add stuff to their green teas such as artificial lemon flavouring or look to fortify it with nicotinamides (niacin vitamin B3).
At Clipper we love a flavoured green tea, but only if the flavouring is natural.
Decaffeinated Green Tea
There are various ways to decaffeinate tea, such as using Methylene Chloride or Ethyl Acetate, which we prefer not to use at Clipper. In fact we use a method which gently removes caffeine using carbon dioxide (CO2). This is the only method organically certified by The Soil Association.
No Bitter End
Not all Green Teas taste the same, and some have a bitter aftertaste that makes Green Tea far less enjoyable.
We work hard to make our Clipper Green Tea taste amazing by sourcing and blending our tea using delicate baby leaves which are gently processed. This produces bright tasting green tea with no astringent bitterness, simply a great taste you can enjoy.
Baby leaves. Natural ingredients. Plus the only decaffeination process recognised by the Soil Association.
Clipper is the UK’s first Fairtrade tea company. We support tea producers and their families by paying fair prices as well as a special Fairtrade premium on our green teas, which goes towards supporting projects such as roads, schools and medical resources.
We keep it natural and only use the best possible ingredients. Our green tea is fresh and fragrant with a clear bright liquor in the cup, as green tea should be. We also blend a range of different flavoured green teas, using natural flavourings, to give you more choice. Great ingredients, great tea and nothing artificial, ever!
