Teatime at Café Gloriette

Tea, anyone?

1 pot of the finest Early Grey tea
1 little vessel with some extra hot water
1 cannikin with milk
1 saucer for the tea strainer
1 cup and saucer for your tea
1 glass of water
1 spoon

All in all,
very proper tea service,
don't you agree?

Café Gloriette is located in the summerhouse,
the Gloriette, high on a hill of
Schönbrunn Palace's gardens.

It was originally built in 1775,
but destroyed during bombing raids in World War II.
Rebuilt in 1947, it underwent a major renovovation
in the nineties.

    There's still snow around Schönbrunn. Yesterday I had to slow down several times because of icy walkways. :-)

    Having a cup of tea there after a strenous walk, looking down on the city and watching the birds and clouds is really a joy to behold. I am glad I can share this with you. ;-)

  4. What a beautiful place to have a proper Tea. Your pitures make it an inviting place to visit.

  5. This is honesty one of the best and prettiest places I encountered in Vienna. I also had a post in September about it ;)

  6. Every day I am greener with envy that you have such gorgeous tea and coffee establishments in your own backyard! I will just have to visit someday! In the meantime, I can dream -- thanks to you! :)
