Chicago's Fig & Olive introduces afternoon high tea menu
March 17, 2017: Restaurant Fig & Olive Chicago, in collaboration with Tea Forté, has launched its new afternoon high tea menu that includes classic teas and light bites along with customized delicacies such as Champagne steeped teas.
Beginning March 22 and continuing every Wednesday through Sunday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Fig & Olive welcomes guests to sit down to a high tea service in the French Riviera-inspired front lounge. Loose tea selections, provided by Tea Forté, include Bombay Chai (blend of black tea and spices found in a traditional Indian masala chai); Wild Berry Hibiscus (tart-sweet juicy berries punctuated with hibiscus tea brewing flowers and rose hips); Rum Raisin Biscotti (black tea with the taste of rum-soaked raisins and sweet blackberry leaves); and Moroccan Mint (blend of Moroccan nana mint leaves and hand-rolled rare gunpowder green tea).
The luxury restaurant will also offer a Royal Tea upgrade, serving teas steeped with Moët & Chandon Champagne to create a unique and luxurious experience. The Royal Tea menu includes
Blueberry Merlot (herbal tea of summer-sweet blueberry with a wisp of sage) and Raspberry Nectar (raspberry blend that steeps in a dramatic way).
Traditional savory and sweet high tea menu items include smoke salmon profiteroles, heirloom tomato tartlet, zucchini bread and white chocolate dried cranberry scones served with vanilla crème fraîche and honey butter, macarons and more.
Price: $35 per person; the Royal Tea upgrade is an additional $19 per person
