SAVOURY AFTERNOON TEA AT FORTNUM & MASON

It has been a very hectic day, out and about meetings, events and shoot around Downtown Dubai, beneath The Dubai Mall and with a spectacular view of the Tallest tower in the World, The Burj Khalifa. We wanted to sit, relax and spent the time watching the amazing dancing fountain and have a savoury afternoon tea at Fortnum & Mason, the one & only shop outside the UK, this stunning  9, 400 sq. ft destination in the sunny sandpit called Dubai will definitely leave a mark to those who want to experience the English traditions and taste the sumptuous tea together with some fine indulgence that we all love. 
Elegance, sophistication and soft vibrant ambiance of the Tea Salon,  which we absolutely love. 
The colors of the interior are irrevocably intertwined, i am so fascinated how the good vibration giving it to me is so refreshing and relaxing. 

My partner in crime, Mark Ross (Officila Photographer of The Style Choreo) in front of the lens making his move to experience this one of a kind Tea Journey. 

This gorgeous Tea set are also available on the Ground Floor for you to purchase. 
I started with this sumptuous Assam Domour Tea, just the smell of it is truly remarkable. The aroma of it smoothen your thoughts, makes you relax and just think of nothing.  And Mark had the Jasmine Phoenix Pearl that is so divine. 
And the dose of bread selections, from sandwiches to mouth-watering canap├ęs are superb. A little bit of taste of everything is just so wonderful.

We also tried the Charlotte cake and Chocolate sachertorte for dessert 

An amazing dining experience at its finest, try the best of the best tea in town and mesmerize by the beauty of the inside and out of the F&M Store. Did i mention about the amazing terrace, and the two other floors? Stay tune for my next review for it...
Fortnum & Mason has taken the tradition of Afternoon Tea and added a host of delicious savoury dishes to the menu. From Victoria Lobster Omelette to Braised Lamb Shoulder, Crab Souffle to Butternut Squash Risotto, Fortnum’s has a plate to suit every palette.

Since the 17th Century the British have embraced the ceremony of Tea and by the 1800s the tradition of Afternoon tea had diversified into a separate meal in itself.  Aside from finger sandwiches, homemade scones and lashings of clotted cream, Fortnum’s new Tea Salon savouries add another layer of pleasure for your Afternoon Tea enjoyment!
