Enjoy High Tea on the Top of the World

Here we are, enjoying another great afternoon tea but this time we’re not in London, not even close. The TripTemptation team has landed in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and we've headed straight for Etihad Towers - the tallest and newest towers in Abu Dhabi. Our visit started with a very special tea ceremony.

Afternoon tea with amazing view on Abu Dhabi

The ceremony takes place in the Jumeirah Etihad Towers on the observation Deck on the 74th floor, 300 metres up.

It's the ideal place to discover Abu Dhabi’s splendid skyline, with a unique panoramic view of the Persian Gulf and the capital of the UAE.

The second you enter the place you are stunned by the view. Huge windows create an unforgettable feeling of freedom, combined with amazement.

There is no table with the best view by the window; every table is considered to be the best table.

The observation deck has a 360-degree view so you can easily walk around the tower to explore every bit of the city surrounding you.

Enjoying afternoon tea

Once you’ve settled down, it is time for the ceremony. You start your meal with a refreshing cold tea following by many different sandwiches. The rich menu will suit practically everyone. There’s even a cake shop at your disposal. We suggest trying some of the fresh salads and quiches on offer.

Afternoon tea desserts

Don’t forget that, after the main course, you are provided with some delicious desserts, accompanied by a traditional tea selection. We chose the delicious Oolong tea and Royal Moroccan tea.

If it wasn’t for the view, I would definitely have had the feeling that I was enjoying my afternoon tea in a cosy and luxurious English restaurant.

I’ve been travelling ever since a was a child but my first large trip was at the age of 13 when I was sent to live for a couple months to London. This trip has changed me and ever since I just want to see more and more of our beautiful world. Every trip gives me new emotions, charge and strength to keep going further.
