Yet another afternoon tea!
What can I say it’s one of my favorite weekend past times.
I mean come on – delicious food, a large selection, grand settings and no rush.
What could be better?!
This past weekend Z and I decided to leave Dubai and head over to the much more relaxing emirate of Abu Dhabi.
(Grab a cupof your own tea – this is a pretty long post – with a bit of a surprise at the end)
Jumeriah Etihad Towers for afternoon tea.
I went with an Arabian blend and Z had the classic English tea (all tea options are by Twinings Tea which are presented on a big yellow menu).
As always the tea came first .
I have to say the selection of sweets was quite diverse.
From mini apple pies, dark cherry swirl cakes and some sort of caramel banana masterpiece; there was quite the selection.
We found that normally the staff will wait until you finish with the sandwich and cake assortment before bringing out scones.
Remember that little carmale banana bite I mentioned before?
Some sort of ridiculously sweet cherry and chocolate creation.
The lobby itself is really something to behold with it’s giant glass walls looking out over the blue water.
And now, I have a little something to share with you.
Over our weekend getaway I decided to try my hand at vloging – so here you are, my very first vlog covering our whole two day getaway. If you do watch it please let me know what you think (I’m sure it’s pretty awkward – the unavoidable fact of a first video – but all the same I would love to have your feedback.)
Or if you would just like to see the little snippet that covers our afternoon tea then start the video at 2:26 minutes in.
Hope you enjoy! xx
