Partnership with Wedgwood

We are delighted that all of the tea and tea ware in Flying Childers has been provided in partnership with Wedgwood.

Wedgwood has been intrinsically linked with tea for over 200 years. Josiah Wedgwood began designing tea ware collections in response to the fashion for drinking tea, which flourished from the mid-18th century.

The adoption of these designs by Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III, resulted in permission to rename the collections “Queen’s ware”. The royal support prompted a deeper link between Wedgwood and tea.
