Afternoon high tea is a renowned British tradition and Dubai has adopted it wholeheartedly. Most of the best hotels in the emirate feature incredible afternoon tea experiences and here are our favourite ones.
1. The Samovar Lounge at the One & Only Royal Mirage
For an elegant afternoon tea in Dubai, why not head over to the One & Only Royal Mirage. An extensive selection of teas are on the menu and they’re all served with a quintessentially English selection of sandwiches and scones, complete with Devonshire cream and strawberry jam.
2. Peacock Alley
Inspired by the Waldorf Astoria’s long-standing high tea tradition, theirs is a nostalgic throwback to the original Peacock Alley, a much-loved institution at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. Their high tea is complimented with a series of savoury and sweet lavish canapes, a bespoke tea trolley and special infused cocktail creations.
3. La Patisserie at Sofitel Dubai Downtown
Sofitel Dubai Downtown has its brand new tea-inspired afternoon tea at La Patisserie. We tried this lovely experience and enjoyed a selection of tea-flavoured sandwiches and sweets, including green tea macaroons, scones and Earl Grey tea. Perfect for someone who is as obsessed with tea-flavoured food. The bites are served in beautiful birdcage-like presentation stands and are lovely tasty morsels. The serving staff knew exactly what went into each item and knew how to pair the course with the types of tea.
