Meet our tea supplier
We know that for many, a visit to a National Trust place wouldn’t be complete without a cup of tea. We've teamed up with Clipper Tea to create an exclusive breakfast tea just for you.
A special blend
As a conservation charity we take sourcing very seriously. We only ever work with suppliers who share our passion for caring about land, nature and those who work in it.
That’s why we chose to partner with Clipper, a Fairtrade brand that shares our commitment. Visit a National Trust tea-room or café and you can enjoy a tasty cup of exclusive National Trust Fairtrade tea and Clipper’s wider range of Fairtrade and organic blends and infusions.
To celebrate the partnership, we worked closely with Clipper to develop a unique blend of tea exclusive to National Trust visitors.
National Trust everyday tea is a brisk, full-flavoured blend with a coppery golden colour. The tea is sourced from the finest tea estates in East Africa and India and carefully blended to deliver a big, bright cup.
The perfect partnership
Clipper was the UK’s first Fairtrade tea company and still manufacture from their factory in Dorset. We chose Clipper as a supplier as they met the high sourcing standards and sustainability levels we expect. They also stood out for us in all sorts of other ways.
From the quality of their blends, which come in unbleached bags and FSC packaging, to their competitive pricing, we believe that Clipper offers the perfect blend of quality, taste and ethics.
