The teaware, made of Wedgwood’s high quality fine bone china with its variety of cup and handle designs is dishwasher safe and inspired by the popular English Tea Gardens that became established in the 18th Century.
Featuring, amongst others, reds (Crimson Jewel), blues (Blue Pagoga) and yellows (Yellow Tonquin), with additional gilding on some pieces, this riot of colour and beautiful mixed patterns also create a wonderful gifting collection and each element of the Wonderlust collection is presented in beautiful signature Wedgwood blue gift boxes ready to celebrate all of life’s special moments.
An exciting part of the Wonderlust collection is the inclusion of highly unique, curated tea blends, curated for Wedgwood by Bernadine Tay, a master tea blender.
