Attention tea lovers! Sofitel Dubai Downtown is marking International Tea Day today by launching its brand new tea-inspired afternoon tea from La Patisserie. With a selection of tea-flavoured sandwiches, sweets and scones, the new menu is sure to be a hit with tea afficinados.
The delights will be served in beautiful birdcage-like presentation stands and the serving staff will explain each item which they bring and the type of tea which has been used for each course.
The experience starts with a glass of date-infused bubbles to cleanse the palate and strawberries with whipped cream. Guests will then be presented with a selection of sandwiches including smoked salmon with matcha green tea jam; tomato, mozzarella and touareg tea jam; red fruit tea jelly and foie gras and lapsang souchon tea jam with smoked duck.
Sweets include lemon madeleines, pecan nut financier and signature green tea macaroon religieuse are served. It will be rounded off with raisin and Earl Grey tea scones served with chocolate drops, clotted cream, lemon curd and blueberry violet jam.
