1872 Clipper Tea Company – Launch of Online Shop

15 06 2014

About two weeks back, I got wind that homegrown 1872 Clipper Tea Company was launching its new online shop (https://www.clippertea.com.sg) and got a chance to test out the web interface just prior to the official launch. What I liked about the site was its user-friendliness. The different teas available are categorized under very distinct sections (“Essentials” for flavoured Ceylon Teas such as Earl Grey or English Breakfast or Darjeeling, “Tropics” for the various Fruit Flavored Teas etc), each with just a handful of choices which does not overwhelm potential buyers.

Armed with $50 of complimentary credit, I got for myself the Yunnan Silver Tips (also commonly known as Silver Needle and supposedly the most prized white tea around, according to the tea expert at a previous tea appreciation course by Gryphon Tea Company), the indispensable Earl Grey Tea, and a herbal blend named “Anti-Stress” made from Rooibos, chamomile, organic honeybush, lemon balm, fennel, lemongrass flavour and ginseng root.

Currently, 1872 Clipper Tea is offering free delivery for orders above $50. Just something to think about if you are into teas or are on the lookout for gifts.
