Afternoon tea is a luxurious moment in the day when everything is put on hold, when friends and family gather, delicate sandwiches and fine cakes are awaited temptingly and the tea leaves brew. Floral or smoky, spicy or sweet, rare teas, infusions, singles or blends – there is a tea for every moment.
It’s a time honoured occasion, that is both ceremony and a casual celebration. It crosses continents, blends cultures and is infused with unique traditions stretching from Arabia to Britain and beyond.
Taste the Art of Tea with us.
Arabesque Afternoon Tea
The tradition of Afternoon Tea has long been embraced and elevated throughout the Middle East. It is a time not just for refreshment, but reflection, discussion, and catching up on valuable moments between friends and family.
Surrounded by elegance, you’ll discover exotic blends of tea which offer perfect refreshment from the dusky heat of the desert, and sample innovative twists on savoury bites and sweet pastries that incorporate prized Arabian ingredients, such as delicate rose and pistachio.
For an Afternoon Tea with an exotic twist, Jumeirah’s Arabesque collection is full of reinvented charm.

British Afternoon Tea
Do you put clotted cream first, then the jam? Or is it jam, then the clotted cream? The answer is, there is no right way to do it. You must simply indulge in the quintessentially British scone exactly how you like to.
First introduced by Anna, 7th Duchess of Bedford the charming British tradition of Afternoon Tea is as fashionable as ever. Still classic, but with a modern twist, Jumeirah has a fine selection of venues where you can meet up with friends and family - or just treat yourself - to exotic teas, the freshest bakes, even a glass of bubbly.
