Tea at the Drake Hotel
Something my mother and I have done since I was a child is done a high tea in Chicago. We’ve tried a few hotels, but we found the best high tea is done at the Drake Hotel. This time my mother-in-law accompanied us.
I always go for my favorite tea, Earl Gray. We had scones and a cranberry loaf. There is a cucumber sandwich, a salmon mousse sandwich, a roast beef tea sandwich and a Thai spiced chicken salad tartlet. For dessert, there was a cream puff in the space of a swan, a French macaron, chocolate cake, and mini cheesecake. We always add a glass of pressco or champagne.
