Famed for it’s Afternoon tea experience, Ritz Carlton offers an extensive menu ranging from savory finger sandwiches to scrumptious scones and sweet delights. Whether it be for a girly afternoon, a hen party or a celebration, Afternoon Tea, is without doubt, one of the most enjoyable ways of whiling time with your ‘Bevy of Ladies’, and this is exactly what my recent experience at Ritz Carlton involved

The Ritz Carlton, situated in the Dubai Financial Center is a stone throw away from Trade Center and is stuffed with white-shirted bankers and the financiers disporting themselves. Afternoon Tea here is lovely with all the quintessential elements, but less formal than in other places. Tea is served in an outdoor terrace or The Lobby Lounge offering a wide array of Ritz Carlton Blended Teas and Ippodo tea, freshly brewed coffee and Herbal Infusions. We were offered a private dining room at Center Cut to mark a celebration Afternoon Tea.  The interiors here reflect the ornate decor and warm tones with artwork of the Wild. It was just the perfect setting that transformed our afternoon treat into a true celebration of all that’s refined with a touch of masculine- for a ‘Brave Boy’ baby shower. The staff here is warm,  experienced and on hand to suit your every need.

SIGNETRING SEALS : Fresh scones served up straight from the oven, warm, crusty, sugar dusted outside with light and fluffy texture inside, perfectly paired with cream and preserves. My choice of Hibiscus Tea was aromatic and refreshing just as I imagined it to be. From the savories and sweets served on the three tiered stand, the smoked turkey and cheese sandwich and the yuzu cake were delightful.
