The 1872 Clipper Tea Co.
The 1872 Clipper Tea Co presents a selection of teas from its various ranges such as Essentials, Tropics, Herbals and Blossoms. The brand name pays tribute to the historic Clipper ships that carry teas to all corners of the world, as well as a nod to the year it was founded in Singapore. Since its early days in 1872, founder and Sri Lankan entrepreneur Balage Porolis de Silva wanted to improve his customers’ appreciation of jewellery with tea at his jewellery boutique. Through five generations, the family-run homegrown business has kept his legacy of craftsmanship and artistry alive.
The 1872 Clipper Tea Co also opened its first flagship store in Singapore, bringing the artisan tea experience with a selection of speciality teas and tea-infused pastries and desserts. With the belief that tea is a daily ritual for enjoyment and relaxation, the Great Taste award-winning tea blends offer a signature aroma and refined taste. Available in a collection of signature Ceylon tea blends or tea assortments in special packaging, The 1872 Clipper Tea Co aims to elevate tea beyond a simple beverage as a premium gift.
