Cunard introduces Wedgewood Tea Service on QE2 and QM2

Cunard Line Introduces Wedgwood Tea Service 

Catering to the preferences and palates of its well-heeled passengers, Cunard introduced Wedgwood Tea Service aboard its flagship Queen Mary 2 and legendary Queen Elizabeth 2. The selection of 23 premium teas includes traditional varieties such as Darjeeling and Orange Pekoe, as well as new flavors specially developed by Wedgwood to suit the tastes of Cunard guests. With the introduction of the new teas and a new tea menu, Cunard's quintessentially British onboard experience is further enhanced and perfectly paired with the Line's renowned White Star Service.

"The introduction of this wide range of Wedgwood teas is a perfect complement to our extensive Wedgwood china collection and underscores the very British experience that passengers expect aboard a Cunard ocean liner," said Carol Marlow, president of Cunard Line. "Whether enjoying afternoon tea, shopping at Harrod's or posting letters in a traditional Royal Mail box, the contemporary Cunard experience continues to be defined by the Line's rich British heritage."

The Wedgwood Tea selection includes Assam, Ceylon, Darjeeling Pure teas, Earl Grey, English Afternoon, English Breakfast, Japanese Green Tea, Jasmine, Lapsang Souchong, Queen Ann, Orange Pekoe, Wedgwood Original,
Camomile, Forrest Berries, Lemon Grass and Peppermint among many others. A new Wedgwood tea menu provides detailed descriptions on the flavors and origins of each variety and traces tea's history in China, Japan,
Europe, America, Russia and India.

Lord Piers Wedgwood, a direct descendant of the original founder of the Wedgwood company and the current Global Ambassador for the Wedgwood Group, said: "The new Wedgwood tea menu stylishly brings together Cunard's
elegant service and classic luxury with Wedgwood's finely crafted china and carefully selected premium teas. The venture truly epitomizes the essence of England in an unforgettable onboard setting."

The full line of Wedgwood teas is available aboard Queen Mary 2 in the daily tea service offered in the Queens Grill Lounge featuring finger sandwiches, sweet pastries and warm scones served with jam and fresh cream. The teas are also available in the Queens Grill and Princess Grill accommodations and restaurants, the Grills Concierge Lounge as well as in other cocktail lounges upon request. Guests will also be able to enjoy the new teas in the ship's new Britannia Club restaurant, debuting in spring 2007.

Aboard QE2, the teas are available in Queens, Princess and Britannia Grill accommodations and restaurants. Additionally, guests can enjoy the teas in the Queens Grill Lounge and in cocktail lounges upon request.
