Teatime at these two The 1872 Clipper Tea Co. boutiques promises to be an intimate, interactive experience that engages all your senses.
The best tea-drinking experiences go beyond savouring a cuppa over sandwiches and scones. Premium home-grown tea brand The 1872 Clipper Tea Co., with its first standalone store in Raffles City Shopping Centre and a revamped store-in-store at Tangs at Tang Plaza, continues to up the ante by creating unique, immersive environments in which connoisseurs can appreciate its brews.
THE ULTIMATE TEA SAMPLING EXPERIENCE
More than just tea salons, these two retail spaces feature signature sampling bars, where consumers can smell each tea variant, feel the size and wholeness of the loose leaves, and look at their shape and colour to determine their quality. This culminates in a tasting session that lets aficionados fully appreciate the delicate flavours and character of their chosen tea.
At the new standalone store in Raffles City Shopping Centre, consumers can also take their pick from four different cold-brewed and milk tea concoctions, sample any of the brand’s loose-leaf blends (the entire range of 40 is available here), and buy its curated range of teaware and tea accessories.
THEATRICS IN TEA
The piece de resistance in both stores is the Alpha Dominche, an innovative machine that shines the spotlight on the intricacies of tea-making by marrying craftsmanship with state-of-the-art engineering.
With its high-tech interface and precise settings, the Alpha Dominche allows tea masters to tailor the temperature, agitation and timing to create the optimal brewing process for each and every variant of tea on the The 1872 Clipper Tea Co. menu. In other words, aficionados can savour the perfect cuppa, with the tea’s subtle notes and nuances developed to their optimal state, every single time.
