Five o’clock tea
Golden Nepal Type Maloon
with Zauner-Kipferl and
Chocolate-dipped, fruit-filled gingerbread
Schärding am Inn
This past Sunday I took the train to
a small town with a beautiful square
lined by Baroque houses.
I spent the day in various places
along the Inn river.
Before I got back on the train,
my brother invited me to a
Patisserie cum Café in one
of the town's small side streets.
I had one of the best tea times ever!
The tea tasted as if grown in heaven,
it was perfectly brewed.
The brioche dough croissant
was dusted by an unstinting hand
with roasted ground hazelnuts,
before it was shaped into its crescent form
and baked to a golden hue.
A sweet scent enveloped you
you savored another tasty morsel.
Master Autumn would
want to be remembered by
such heavenly goodness.
