Hey Guys and Cheers to the Weekend!
Most of you know by now that my husband and I recently moved to Downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We had slowed down on posting for a while during our move and getting settled into the new place…. but now we’ve been so busy checking out everything this city has to offer and we have a lot of new content coming up that we can’t wait to share with you!
I want to tell you about our recent experience enjoying Afternoon Tea at the Blu Milwaukee, located on the 23rd floor of The Pfister Hotel. For starters, we’ve visited and stayed at the Pfister before as well as Blu and we are big fans of both of them…so we had to try something as cool sounding as Afternoon Tea!
Upon our arrival, we were immediately greeted by two well dressed and friendly gentlemen that were working as the Tea Butlers for that day. They brought us to our comfortable windowside table with a beautiful spread of silver serving dishes and tasteful china. We were also greeted with this incredible view from our table :).
Our Tea Butler was Stephan and he did a wonderful job of explaining all the different Rishi Teas they offer as well as the different infusion options you have to choose from. They bring over a cart with over a dozen different teas to choose from with a wide variety of styles as well as non-caffeinated options. Stephan explained each one to us and allowed us to smell each one before deciding on a tea and an optional infusion such as apple, mint, lemon, cinnamon, mango, vanilla, and others.
We took Stephan’s recommendation and each ordered different types of tea so that we could share with one another. After a few short minutes, Stephan was back with our beautiful self pouring silver tea pots and a spread of small sandwiches and desserts.
What we liked about this is it is something different. There’s no rush with something like this. It’s a great place to go and not take your phone and enjoy an afternoon date with someone special, or catch up with some friends. Oh, and we liked that they had champagne to indulge in while you wait for your tea to brew :).
The staff was extremely attentive, but in a non-invasive way that really allows you to relax and unwind. We also enjoyed the piano music that was just enough to add to the ambiance. I think we wound up staying about an hour and a half or so, but you could easily make it shorter or longer depending on your preference. I could also recommend this to you Mommy’s out there if you wanted to get away by yourself and get some “me-time” with a book.
So, if you’re interested in having your own Afternoon Tea with a view, then I’ll share a couple things you should know before going:
Let me know if you’ve done this at the Blu/Pfister or if there is something similar in your town. We would love to check it out during our travels! Also, feel free to ask any questions you have about Afternoon Tea at the Blu. Have a great weekend everyone!

My goal is to inspire others to believe in themselves, to be comfortable with what and who they are, express their own uniqueness, and to motivate people to go out and do things outside of their comfort zone. I would love to connect with you!Read More
