Check out its new flagship store at ION Orchard.

The 1872 Clipper Tea Company is bringing the artisan tea experience to Singapore with the opening of its 743-square feet flagship store at ION Orchard.

Founded by Sri Lankan entrepreneur Balage Porolis de Silva, The 1872 Clipper Tea serves an array of teas from different ranges, namely Essentials, Herbals and Blossoms, Tropics, Luxuries, Travel and Heritage.

“We aim to kindle curiosity for tea by providing rich, exploratory experiences that bring people together. We want to trigger and engage the different senses of our customers to provide that experience,” said Rehan Amarasuriya, Director of The 1872 Clipper Tea Company.

De Silva first established a jewellery boutique in Singapore in 1872. Apart from selling gems, the boutique also served the best Ceylon tea to customer, as having tea is a daily ritual for relaxation and enjoyment in Sri Lanka.

The 1872 Clipper Tea’s name pays tribute to the historic Clipper ships that raced to carry chests of the freshest teas to all corners of the world, at the same time acknowledging the year the company planted our roots in Singapore.

Besides serving a variety of hot teas, this takeaway retail concept would also include a range of specialty teas and tea-infused pastries and desserts.

“We want to break the traditional mindset that tea should be consumed hot. There are endless possibilities as to how tea can be enjoyed,” Rehan says.
