Our adaptogenic herbal tea blends are crafted by Clover founder and certified tea sommelier, Paul Higgins. Paul uses creativity to craft balanced blends without the use of any flavourings (natural or artificial) - natural, as nature intended.
We’re obsessed with quality and that’s why we work with small batch blending for quality, consistency, and freshness. Clover’s tea sommeliers source various botanical cut sizes for each ingredient to ensure optimal blending and steeping properties for the best possible blend experience. We test rigorously to ensure optimal strength, colour, profile and synergy with other ingredients - for optimal function to target specific health ailments. We carefully select and incorporate complimentary adaptogens into all of our blends to help the body adapt to stress, support normal metabolic function, and help restore equilibrium.
When it comes to product packaging our ultimate goal is zero-waste. We intentionally avoid creating any landfill waste and ensure our packaging is as sustainable as possible. Even our tea bags (sachets) are compostable, tag and string free. Check out our Sustainable Packaging page to learn more about why we chose these options.
At Clover, we are 100% committed to sustainability and focused on giving back. A major focus of our mission is to help people feel better (naturally), through sustainable, low impact production methods. We will always actively do our part to help leave the world better than how we found it.
