I have found that museums are enjoyable places to take tea. Virtually every one has a restaurant, tea house, or coffee shop. Usually, the food proves delicious. I can’t think of a better combination than a day admiring art and a delicious cup of tea with a bite to eat. If the gallery has a decorative arts wing, so much the better.
Did you know that there are entire museums dedicated to porcelain, silver, and china? One of the best I’ve seen is the Silver and Crockery Museum in the Hofburg Palace (Winter Palace) in Vienna. When I visited, the Hofburg tour — then available only in German — proved sparse (I’ve learned it has since improved). However, the Crockery museum, located below the palace, was amazing and well worth the price of entry. It turned out to be one of our favorite sites. Even my husband enjoyed the experience!
