Celebrate Mother’s Day With Afternoon Tea
Updated on 11 March 2021

Afternoon tea, a meal in between lunch and dinner.

The original concept of afternoon tea was created by the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in England, to ward off the hunger pangs that set in while waiting for the evening meal.

With Mother’s Day in the UAE fast approaching on 21 March, what better way to shower your mother with love than treating her to a delightful afternoon tea that will surely be a tradition to follow in the years to come.

Here are seven places around Dubai that are a must-visit for an enjoyable afternoon tea.
