The Daughter treated me to The Peabody Tea at Chez Philippe in the Peabody Hotel downtown. This is an elegant restaurant in one of the region's most elegant and storied hotels. I've been to the hotel for sight-seeing, the ducks, people-watching, photo-ops on the roof, and coffee and tea in the lobby many times but had never been to this restaurant.
We had a choice of teas, and I chose the Emperor's Pu-erh tea. It was purple and fruity. The Daughter selected Earl Grey.
The tea had three courses. The appetizer course:
the scone course:
and the dessert course:
I was overwhelmed by the tasty treats. Such delights! The staff couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming.

In the photo above you can see tourists on the mezzanine waiting for the Duck March.

If you're ever in Memphis, and you want an enjoyable experience, I'd highly recommend this. Because we're currently in the middle of our annual Memphis in May celebration there were tourists everywhere. I have a special place in my heart for people who like us well enough to spend their vacations here.
