Teatime at Bateel

4:09 AM

Afternoon Tea...

Developed as tradition in so many cultures, Tea Time is not only a moment to pause and reflect, it can be a communal bonding experience between family, friends or workmates. Tea itself dates back to China well before many of us can even track our ancestry but has modernly developed into a moment taken in the afternoon, placed between meals, to take a beat and have a sip or a snack.

I stopped by Bateel to have such an afternoon moment and was delighted to discover this new Tea Menu introduced after Ramadan passed. The fixed menu presents a 3-tiered assortment of sweet and savory "bites" accompanied by two warm beverages and a selection of jelly, honey and whipped cream to top your scones.

I found the menu to be a good balance of sweet and savory. There was enough selection to find myself unable to finish, which I would prefer over wanting more. The tea was warm and fresh, the latte was sharp yet sweet and I found myself satisfied and content. Traditional. Delightful. Satisfying. I would recommend this moment to anyone in Dubai. Lovely.
