#88- High Society


We wanted to do something different for Emily’s birthday this year, so:

I had formal afternoon tea.

We went to the Drake Hotel, where we proceeded to order our tea flavors and enjoy tiny sandwiches, scones, and desserts. Katie chose pear caramel tea, the birthday girl chose Earl Grey; I chose a variety of green tea called gunpowder. It was yummy and the food was really good. There was a woman playing the harp to serve as the background music. I would definitely recommend doing this if you live in Chicago- if you live somewhere else, find a place near you that offers tea service. To have a similar experience, avoid places ending in “mart” or those that have a drive through.

    I always thought it was “tea for two and two for tea.” There appears to be three in the picture. What up with that?

    I don’t see crumpets present at all. I thought those were essential for tea drinking…
