It was a gorgeous and civilised end to our Sunday afternoon at TASTE London. We found ourselves indulging in pure tea in cute vintage style Wedgwood tea cups with dainty little handmade chocolate from Paul A. Young.We entered the Wedgwood Tea House to be totally transformed into a very refined area indeed. From the real wood floor, swish, gloss bar top, satin-style dusty pink chairs, and fine bone china displays – we were met with a very warm welcome from Jenny, our host and Wedgwood Marketing Manager, and the divine team from Inca who were behind the production of this successful event.
During the week, visitors to the tea house were entertained with dancing, a visit from Lord Wedgwood himself, expert advice, and real tea. I only have soya milk in my tea and coffee, but the range of real tea that Wedgwood have added to their collection is so pure and delicious, it is a shame to ruin it with any milk whatsoever.
When I was a little girl, I was given a very traditional Wedgwood blue and white dish with a lid. To this day, I use it to keep my jewellery, and hair pins and the odd safety-pin and button in it. Every little girl should have a piece of Wedgwood, and Chic Mini does too, all thanks to the very lovely Jenny. Chic Mini was so well behaved and super cute that she was given a little gift. Thank you very much Jenny.
This is a timeless classic – the butterfly cup and saucer just for Chic Mini.
While we were sat sipping our tea, I must have witnessed about half a dozen sales on the china alone. It was selling like hot cakes. The Americans love the British luxury brand.
The chocolates for this event were designed by Paul A. Young. Divine and well matched to the real teas.
The Wedgwood range of goodies, from tea cups to pendants, cufflinks and packets of tea. Everyone deserves a little bit of Wedgwood in their life.
This was such a successful event, that I am sure we will be seeing a lot more of these pop up style events from Wedgwood, bringing this vintage luxury British brand and real tea to the public.
