Here’s a list of tea-stations you should visit in Abu Dhabi for an immersive afternoon tea experience.

5 Unmissable Afternoon Tea Experiences In Abu Dhabi

1. Rosewood

Rosewood in Abu Dhabi has introduced an afternoon tea that is specifically dedicated to all chocolate fans and it costs AED 220. They have an extensive high tea menu every Thursday which consists of everything chocolate on the spread. Apart from a 3.5 metre-long table where everything is filled with chocolate, you can actually eat your plates as well, which are also made of 100 percent chocolate. The chocolate high tea takes place every Thursday from 3:00 pm until 9:00 pm at the Rosewood hotel which is located on Al Maryah Island, Abu Dhabi.

The cafe features excellent tea blends and freshly ground coffee served with sweet and savoury pastries. The limited-themed afternoon tea, presented in an iconic Tiffany blue box, is available at both Observation Deck 300 and the hotel’s Lobby Lounge.
