No More Afternoon Tea I Guess | Sarab Lounge, St. Regis Doha

The Afternoon Tea saga on my blog continues. If you haven’t been keeping track, here’s the previous experience I had of an afternoon tea. This time it was at St. Regis’s Sarab Lounge, and yes as much as the title is misleading, the experience is a must-have.

The afternoon tea at the St. Regis Doha is an experience like none other in Doha. As soon as we were seated,we were greeted, and handed over the menu. As we went over the menu an overly delicious welcome drink was placed before us.

The lady who was serving our tea was a very shy and humble young lady Tumar. A sip of the welcome drink, and they were so refreshing, and delicious. It was said to be a mix of cherries, and ginger ale – tasted really refreshing and  was quite therapeutic on the eyes in terms of presentation.

We opted for the St. Regis Doha Afternoon Tea off the menu. Just to mention, there are three different kinds of Afternoon Tea – The Lady Caroline Astin Afternoon Tea, The Arabian Heritage Afternoon Tea, and The St. Regis Doha Afternoon Tea.

Then, came the highlight of the Afternoon tea- picking the tea to go along with our canapes. Did I mention that there were a 100 different teas to choose from on the menu?

Tumar showed to us different kind of teas from around the world. She would open each jar, feel the fragrance of the tea, and then explained where the mix was from, and in turn passed it onto us. Before, we knew we were in a dreamy land full of fragrances of wild flowers, berries, teas from Africa to China, and more. After what was a long time, Mr. M settled for his tea. He went for the Jade of Africa – red tea enhanced with the subtle fragrance of red berries and a sprinkling of sunflower petals. A light and fruity tea for any time of the day!

As for me, I opted for Alexandria tea – A dreamy reminder of Arabian nights, this green tea is subtly scented with rare mint and Mediterranean corn flowers.

The tea was served in the most gorgeous Narumi Tea set.

The St. Regis Doha is a mix of the Arabian Heritage Afternoon Tea, and the Caroline Aster Afternoon Tea.

The Caroline Aster set came with a lot of very carefully put-together delicious desserts, that were more like things that came off your fashion wardrobe. There was also a black swan that came off a lake from faraway. It also came with some really huge and juicy strawberries, and cream dip.

The Arabian Heritage Afternoon Tea was more laid-back in terms of presentation. And, as you all know, I fall hard for Arabic food, that was the case this time as well. They had an amazing shawarma, and that was all I needed! Not really!

The food was great, the presentation was awesome. What I like about Afternoon Teas are that they generally tend to be very light hearted experiences with ample amount of serving which is not too heavy on the stomach either. And, in the weather here, it is a great gathering option!

In terms of canapes, I preferred the ones on the Arabian Heritage Afternoon Tea set, and desserts from Caroline Aster. Would that be offered as another set in the future? We will have to wait and see!

That dear readers was my experience at St. Regis! I apologize for the misleading heading though! Made you want to open, and read it right? What I meant was it would be hard to find another afternoon tea like this! Here’s more pictures from the amazing experience I had.

    Someone else was praising this tea to me the other day. I have never done an afternoon tea, but I am thinking this is the place!

The wind was strong, the water wild, but there was peace as we watched the sun go down.
Peace that only nature could provide with.
And, it was the most relaxing scene to watch.
A beautiful experience for me.

LIMITLESS SKIES
Pushing myself to do better everyday is one thing I have always done for myself.
I have believed that the only limit you have around is dependent on what you place yourself in.
How beautiful is this view? From an excursion taken during my stay in the @sholacrownmunnar

N E W  P H O N E  C O V E R @caseartsI love colors, painting, art, and so many things. I am sure I cant make a list of what I like here because its never ending. I have been following @inkstruckstudio 's beautiful artworks and blog.
She has a free downloadable wallpaper up on her blog every month. Very pretty ones!
And, I fell in love with the one in October like every other work of hers.
When @casearts came to me - (they give you printed mobile cover designs of your choice.)
I had no idea what I wanted as my mobile cover.
And, then when I saw Zakkiya's wallpaper I decided that this wallpaper would look pretty as my phone cover. I loved how it turned out.
Thank you @casearts for this mobile cover.
And, thanks Zakiyya for sharing your beauriful artwork with us every other day.

Who would believe if they saw these pearls crafted to perfection were actually chocolates? Until I had a bite of it and saw it for myself, i was just amazed.
These welcome amenities from @ritzcarltondoha kept me staring at its beauty for a while before I could take a bite out of it. What beauty! Such incredible skills 😍😍

Never done a vlog before but I think its about time you get an insight into my experiences with more than just words.
These were shots I took in the @kandolhu Maldives with absolutely no plans of creating a vlog. However, since I came across a creative videographer @ah.films who put it together brilliantly, I thought this had to come online. I hope you enjoy watching it and let me know your thoughts . 💗💗 .
