Piers Anthony Weymouth Wedgwood, 4th Baron Wedgwood (20 September 1954 – 29 January 2014) was the fourth Baron Wedgwood of the pottery dynasty. After initially following a military career, he later worked as an international ambassador for the Wedgwood company.

“I actually spent the first years of my life in Africa where it was a bastion of the British Empire and of course everything is done in a various way. The kettle was always on as a boy.”

“Tea has become increasingly an occasion to get together. Here in Australia tea is a part of life.”

“Taking afternoon tea is something I really enjoy in our busy, crazy lives today.”

“A place I believe where everyone who enjoys tea should go is, the mecca of English afternoon tea is the new refurbished Savoy. That room is magnificent.”
