Clipper Teas is adding a Manuka variant to its green teas in response to growing consumer interest in the natural healing properties of the honey.

The newcomer will launch into Waitrose and Tesco stores this week at an rsp of £1.89 per box of 20 bags. It will line up alongside the brand's other wellbeing varieties including Echinacea and Ginkgo Bilboa. "Our customers are constantly looking for new green tea varieties," said Gill Hesketh, marketing director. "The healing and soothing powers of Manuka honey have captivated experts across the world."
