    1872 Clipper Tea History

    In 1872, a young Ceylonese by the name of Balage Porolis De Silva planted his roots in Singapore bringing along with him his love for Ceylon’s finest teas at a jewellery boutique along High Street. Hailing from Sri Lanka where having tea is a daily ritual for relaxation and enjoyment, he wanted to enhance his customers’ appreciation of jewellery with tea. This family-run business has kept his legacy of artistry and craftsmanship alive through five generations.
