Hey, y'all! So, back in 2021, I did a super cool thing with a few of my favorite girls, and I wanted to share! This activity was so cute! It was different from anything that my friends and I had ever done together. We get cute and go out often but it's not often that we dress up for tea! I'm sure you're thinking that a tea party is childish but our afternoon tea at 17Berkshire gave luxury! Think about it how often do you get to meet with friends for tea during the week to just hang out??
But anyway, I arrived at 17Berkshire early to a set table and menus! I was super excited to let my palate explore and have some girl time! Of course, the shop was perfect for pictures. I had my tripod so I was ready to capture moments! Once my friends arrived we got started and were guided through our afternoon. Everyone was very attentive and informative. They gave an explanation of everything on the table, recommendations, and explained the flavors of items in detail! The treats and bites were flavorful and it was at 17Berkshire that I discovered I actually like milk or cream in my tea from time to time. Afternoon tea created a moment where we could just relax and try new things. It was an experience I highly recommend and I will definitely be going back for afternoon tea soon! In fact, I've already visited again to have a mobile WFH day there. Afternoon tea can also be booked for children so, if you have a birthday or want to spend time with your daughter, mentee, or relative, tea would be perfect! Afternoon tea has to have a minimum of 2 people and includes a pot of tea (served per coupled), tea scones, small bites, and assorted petit pastries all made in-house. Parties of 6 or more must contact 17 Berkshire directly.
Don't forget that 17Berkshire is a bakery! They will happily welcome custom orders if you need something sweet!
17 Berkshire is a Patisserie + Coffee/ Tea Shop in Overton Square owned by fellow Memphian, Nuha. It is decorated beautifully and has the tastiest little treats. It is great for meetings, grabbing a sip with a friend, photoshoot, or hosting your mobile work day! It is located at
2094 Trimble Place
Memphis TN 38104
P.S. I'm always finding fun and different things to do in the city and I encourage you all to do the same. I have an event calendar that's always filled with events and if you need recommendations just ask!
