Okay, this may pertain to more of the females of the group. I love the Pfister hotel and I also love cookies. What better way to spend a cold Saturday afternoon than sipping warm tea and eating scrumptious cookies while enjoying the view at the top of the Pfister. I think we may have to dress up a little at this event, but it's something I'm willing to do when in company of some good people.
Enjoy a respite from the bustle of daily chores with friends and family as we return to the memorable experience of a gentler era. We have created an experience that will surely become a treasured memory for you and yours with every detail of service attended to by our Tea Butler.

The Afternoon Tea experience at The Pfister hotel is unlike that of any other hotel. In Blu, the 23rd floor lounge of the Pfister, you will be surrounded by panoramic views of Milwaukee and Lake Michigan. Treat yourself to a relaxing afternoon of grand elegance. Afternoon tea features Liif Tea with five menu options including a classic Victorian Tea.

To further set apart the Pfister’s tea experience, the position of Tea Butler was created to facilitate the social and interactive tea experience. The Tea Butler’s role is to speak about the varieties of tea, the countries of origin and unique flavors, the ways that tea affects mood and health, and to offer food and flavor pairing suggestions to go with the varieties of tea. The process of creating unique tableside tea blends provides a creative and personal experience. During each tea experience, the Tea Butler will visit the table with a gueridon service trolley to explain the tea, discuss table side blending options and offer tealeaf samples so the guest may enjoy the distinctive aromas of each variety. The Tea Butlers use an all-silver service, including a replica of an 18th century self-tipping teapot. To ensure that individual tea varieties are brewed to the correct temperature, individual brewing units are used for the different styles of teas.
