About two years before our 2013 safari to South Africa

we were told of High Tea at the Bur Al Arab in Dubai.

At the ninth hour our trip to the Serengeti via Dubai

was changed to Kruger National Park

in South Africa.

No Dubai, unless a long detour!

It took us another three years before we had

any hope of being anywhere near Dubai.

We decided to spend a few nights in Dubai,

the Burj Al Arab is well out of our price range,

and the first thing we did was book the

Burj Al Arab High Tea

as one of our outings.

Fast forward to last week,

and MGW had book us High Tea

in  Melbourne as a

Wedding Anniversary outing.

All served on Wedgewood china…

the experience was a little different

to the Burj Al Arab…

however, both experiences

had delicious endings.

And better yet Melbourne provided us with

a teapot of freshly made tea to wash it all down.

THEN, I had to find another notch in my belt.

  1. Hi, Woolly. How wonderful that you like high tea. I’m sad to say that my guy really doesn’t like it, so I need to recruit other people to go with me! Your shots and experiences look marvelous. Perfectly delicious and perfectly apt for this week’s theme. Did you like one tea more than another? They both look great.


    • I think it an enjoyable way to pass a few hours. Not the sort of thing I would do everyday…but loved the two ocession we have ‘done’ High Tea. Which one? Would have to say the Burj Al Arab simply because it was a 7 star hotel and the sheer opulence of the building. Having the Concierge greet us by name upon arrival, all added to the experience. Melbourne less exotic, closer to home and probably do 2.5 Melbourne High Teas for the same price as the Burj Al Arab. However, if we ever make it back to Dubai I think we will book in High tea at the Burl Al Arab again. And seeing as I have become a SKI (Spend the Kids Inheritance) Parent may even book in for a night, or two. If I win Tattslotto that’s a definite! 😀
