Byzantium Lounge, Taj Hotel

Fortnum & Mason Dubai
It's the classic afternoon tea with a twist at Fortnum & Mason Dubai where they've introduced the Afternoon Tea Sundae. Inspired by some of the most popular tea flavours, the Afternoon Tea Sundae is a mix of Rose Ripple, Cucumber and Mint, Strawberry and of course, scones. But that's not all, as Italian meringue, half an éclair and scone top off the colourful and flavourful tea time delight.

Nothing says luxury quite like gold and Armani Lounge invites you to savour your cappuccino, made from the finest regional coffee beans, with a sprinkling of 23-carat gold flakes. As well, the accompanying rich dark chocolates served as the perfect accompaniment to this exquisite sensory experience.
