Here’s your travel itinerary with The 1872 Clipper Tea Co.:
- Take a walk around the streets of London and enjoy the carefree ambience with a cup of Chelsea. Savour this 1872 Clipper brew that has a hint of fresh citrus and a rich robust finish that lingers in your throat.
- Reminisce your trips to Hong Kong with a taste of Kowloon. Its traditional taste is infused with contemporary tangy and fruity notes, evoking memories of your time in Kowloon – a place with a curious mix of cultures, old and new.
- Take flight to the land of bubble tea with 101. Inspired by Taiwan’s iconic brown sugar bubble tea, 101 is a medley of delightful flavours. Distinct to what the Taiwanese love, expect a bold burnt caramel flavour, with a subtle aftertaste of honey and apricot.
- Experience autumn in Tokyo with Shibuya. A sip of Shibuya will bring you down memory lane – admire the city painted in crimson and gold with a soothing blend of clear honey and smokey oak notes.
- For a palate-coating tinge sweetness, get the most subtle flavour on the menu – Nuwara. Inspired by the hill city of Sri Lanka, Nuwara Eliya, Nuwara is light in colour and delicate in taste, naturally sweet with a pleasant mellow floral note.
From a strong vertically integrated supply chain to innovative brewing techniques, The 1872 Clipper Tea Co. is constantly on a global quest to master the artistry behind the perfect cup of tea. The first of its kind in Singapore, the homegrown brand introduces the slow drip technique with the Marco SP9 – Automated Pour-Over Coffee Brewed, typically used for coffee, to extract the best flavours from the unique tea blends.
Made to brew custom blends one at a time for each customer, the slow drip technique seeks to unlock the distinct flavour profiles of the tea through a measured nine-part extraction process, allowing each tea leaves’ robust fragrance to be extracted in full glory. Be introduced to a world of tea simply brewed to perfection!
By maintaining a constant temperature and dispensing the exact amount of water throughout the multi-step brewing process, the SP9 serves up a cup of quality 1872 Clipper tea, brew after brew, bringing out the deep aromatic flavours of the tea leaves. The SP9 pulses water nine times, incorporating pre-infusion and pulse brewing to prevent the water from losing temperature. The final product is then drizzled on a precisely measured volume of ice cubes for that perfect cuppa iced tea, ensuring that the familiar taste of your favourite blends remain the same each time you come back for more.
Choose to drink it straight or add a dash of fresh or oat milk, and however sweet you’d take your tea, you can choose sugar levels from 0% to 100%.For the first time ever, you can also choose to bring the 1872 Clipper blends to a different dimension of texture and flavours with our new classic toppings – White Konjac Pearls or Brown Sugar Pearls, launching exclusively at the Jewel outlet.
With National Day just around the corner, indulge in the sweet taste of home with The 1872 Clipper Tea Co.’s Sunny Island Coconut.
