Formal Tea at the Milwaukee Pfister

In mid-November I  had the pleasure of  spending an afternoon with wonderful friends at the Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee for a formal tea.  The Tea service was located on the 27th floor at Blu.

I loved that the Tea Butler took the time to speak about the varieties of Tea and then let us indulge in the aroma of each one. Very impressive.  We chose the Victorian Tea from the menu which consisted of the following:

  • Butler Passed French St. Andre Mousse Cones with Fresh Honeycomb Delicate Cucumber Sandwich, Dill Chantilly
  • Curried Quail Eggs, Chive
  • Herb Roasted Turkey Pinwheels with Red Onion Marmalade Crab Louis Salad, Sweet Gherkins
  • Scottish Smoked Salmon, Savory Crepes, Herb Neufchatel Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
  • Freshly Baked Scones,
  • Mascarpone, Lemon Curd & Strawberry Preserves
  • Petit fors
  • French Macaroons and Madeleines
The food was exquisite and the service was outstanding. The ambience was very relaxing with a beautiful view (on a lovely sunny day) of downtown Milwaukee.  Note the silver tea service.

I was wearing Haenuli's Juliet OP.  As usual lots of compliments and questions about the fashion.
Looking forward to next year's trip and doing this all over again!
