Experience 'Teariffic' Times and Season at IHG Hotels

From the first cup of tea brewed in ancient China, to the dainty finger sandwiches and elegant pastries of the British empire, afternoon teas have always been gratifying.

Whether you’re looking for a traditional afternoon tea or something more contemporary in London or Dubai this season, here are some IHG hotels steeped in teatime excellence.

Traditional English Tea

If the Traditional English Tea is your sort of thing, then the InterContinental London Park Lane is your sort of place, with The Royal Afternoon Tea menu.

Naturally, there are plenty of high-quality loose-leaf teas to choose from, and for celebrations (or just because), the Royal Afternoon Tea can be accompanied by a glass of R de Ruinart Champagne.

The hotel's savory selection also features Scottish lobster and saffron sandwich, classic finger sandwiches, and the Queen’s favorite chocolate biscuit cake.

If you desire to indulge in Traditional English Tea with an authentic Parisian culinary experience, the InterContinental Dubai Festival City is your place, with “Dubai’s finest” afternoon tea.

With a premium collection of French delicacies, you will enjoy signature scones, pastries and the finest tea selection all while taking in the hotel’s ambient setting with friends or family.

Tea with a Dash of Curated Art

Away from traditions, if you want to get arty while enjoying your afternoon tea, plan to visit the Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown featuring more than 200 artworks.

With its afternoon tea offering, guests can stylishly devour a three-tiered stand of mouth-watering savory and sweet treats with a hint of signature quirk and oozing with culinary creativity.

After you've indulged in the edible art, you'll have time to explore the unique curated collections of art and design objects on display at Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown.

Tea with a View

But if you don't love it traditional or arty, you should love it with beautiful views. And that is why the Crowne Plaza Dubai Marina is your plug if afternoon tea with a view is your thing.

The afternoon tea here promises an impeccable experience. With stunning views of picturesque Dubai Marina, you can sample traditional flavors of tea, sandwiches, scones and desserts from two different menus for up to 15 people at the Lo+Cale restaurant.

Need to host a large event? Don't worry. You can book a private afternoon tea in the hotel’s ballroom.
