Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 5 August, 2020 – The very English custom of taking afternoon tea is thought to have found its roots in the 19th century by Lady Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford. Lunch in those days was rather early and dinner was not served until late in the evening. Every afternoon, the Duchess found that she was famished and began to request a pot of tea, served with some light refreshments. The Duchess began inviting her friends to join her and very soon, enjoying tea in the middle of the afternoon became fashionable.
Afternoon Tea has been a tradition that has graced British afternoons since the 1840s, and has since evolved into what is often a highbrow social occasion. Ladies and Gentlemen in the UAE are invited to celebrate Afternoon Tea Week in true British style and relax in the luxurious surroundings over a quintessential afternoon tea experience between 10 to 16 August at The Lobby Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai.
Indulge in a selection of elegant sandwiches filled with confit salmon with horseradish, curried egg and caper, roasted beef and pommery mustard, in addition to the classic cucumber and chives served alongside sour cream. Traditional scones accompanied by Devonshire clotted cream with berry jam and lemon curd are all served alongside an assortment of sweets from lemon meringue tart, Battenberg cake, pistachio macaroon and chocolate and orange éclair, for the perfect ending to a refined affair.
