MILWAUKEE —The elegant afternoon tea service at The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee will return Friday and be offered until April 1.

Modeled after a traditional English tea experience, The Pfister will provide a tableside tea blending ad presented in all-silver service by a Pfister Tea Butler. Tea will be paired with a special menu complete with fresh scones, sandwiches and pastries. The Pfister’s tea service is offered in Blu, on the 23rd floor of the hotel, offering panoramic views of Milwaukee’s skyline and Lake Michigan.

“Our afternoon tea service is one of our most popular offerings at The Pfister Hotel. Our tea service is especially popular during the holiday season when people are looking for a relaxing respite from the bustle of busy holiday activities, to relax and unwind in our elegant tea room overlooking the city. We look forward to once again welcoming guests for this beloved tradition,” said Tim Smith, general manager of The Pfister Hotel, in a statement.

Served during the tea service are 12 varieties of Rishi Tea, including its signature blend, Pfister 1893, exclusively crafted in 2013 in conjunction with Milwaukee- based Rishi Tea. A special menu for children 21 years and younger features warm sipping chocolate, lemonade, cider, Vermont ham and cheddar finger sandwiches, herbed chicken salad tartlets, traditional scones and chocolate ganache tartlets.
