These sad and rainy days in Milan make me feel like winter hasn’t really ended.
I rember when it used to snow, everything was white, and a steaming cup of tea was the perfect missing element for a perfect movie-like scene.
It was in one of those days that I had the best experience regarding tea I’ve ever lived. A friend of mine told me she had a most wonderful cup of tea here in Milan and promised to bring me with her wherever this place was; so we decide to go together on a snowy Friday, we took the metro right to Montenapoleone and then we took some little, not very well-enlightened streets and then, there we were: The Bulgari Hotel.
In that moment I felt quite uncomfortable and awkward: I was in one of the most luxurious places in the city!
But as I sat in a most cosy and soothing armchair and a polite, smiling waiter gives us a warm welcome, all that ill-fitting feelings just disappeared.
The atmosphere was simply perfect: snow outside, a popping fire and classy but warm furnitures inside.
If the atmosphere was perfect, well, that’s how the service was too: with a cup of excellent tea, served in a white fine bone china, some fancy pastries and chocolates.
Just two commentary words: simply divine.
Waiting for the sun to come I enjoy a steaming cup of black tea with rose petals!
I hope you will enjoy it too!
