Wedgwood is one of my favorite makers of fine china, but did you know that they also make fine tea?
I tried the Pure Ceylon tea from the Dimbula region of Sri Lanka. As you can see it is a fine cut loose black tea that infuses quickly and produces a nice full flavored cup.
The tin itself is quite pretty with its two shades of blue and Jasper ware designs.
I’ve learned that Cunard Cruise Line introduced the Wedgwood Tea Service onboard the Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth 2 in December 2006. They provide their passengers a white glove afternoon tea experience including 23 premium teas developed by Wedgwood to suit the tastes of their well-heeled guests. I’m curious as to whether the full line of Wedgwood teas is still available on the Cunard liners that are presently in service.
I’ll be on the lookout for other Wedgwood tea selections including Assam, Darjeeling, Earl Grey, English Afternoon, Japanese Green, Queen Ann, Orange Pekoe and others.
This is the Ceylon tea the way I like it with a splash of organic 1% milk. The teacup is Wedgwood Queen’s Ware in the Edme pattern.
