Sip tea from a Tiffany-esque tea cup with an unbeatable backdrop view of The Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Fountains at Fortnum & Mason Dubai.
The tree tier structure located dot center, neighboring The Dubai Mall and The Address Downtown Dubai features a retail store, selling various F&M products from edibles to home use items etc. On the second floor, the ‘tea room’ dedicates a sit-down experience for the celebrated tea experience and on the top most floor, ‘the parlour‘ features unique blends of ice creams, macarons and slices of house cakes to fulfill your indulgent desires.
A row of pâtisserie cakes flaunts center of the tea room surrounded by hues of aquamarine accents with the outdoor foyer mesmerizing the eyes with the fantastic view of Dubai.
The delectable high-tea at Fortnum & Mason catered sweet & savory options staying true to the traditional routes. Albeit, a long wait for the tea tier, the robust and famed tea choice from the varied selection of the menu introduced the taste buds to a tea experience with the white tea proving a tasteful selection paired well with the accompanied finger sandwiches, crumbly plain and raisins scones complimented with F&M labeled choice of jams and lashings of clotted cream and variety of petits fours.
At ‘the parlour‘ a unique mix of ginger + vanilla in the form of a Ginger ice-cream with a picture-esque location provided the ultimate views, as similar with the tea room, in a more relaxed setting.
For what it’s worth, the overall experience of the high-tea was on par with what F&M caters and has been for years, but personally, considering the price (especially for a slice of cake, 60AED to be precise), F&M would be a once in a time experience rather than an often visit to fulfill my afternoon tea cravings.
