New High Tea Asian Style

Enjoy tea with a difference at the Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai Lobby Lounge

Created in 1840 in England by the Duchess of Bedford, high tea became a necessity at 4.00pm in the afternoon as her house hold would serve the evening meal fashionably late at 8.00pm. Since then, afternoon tea has become a much loved Middle Eastern formal social occasion.

The Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai is putting an Asian twist to the afternoon delight with an ‘East meets West’ new Asian High Tea.1asian-high-tea-b-1
