Caramel Lobby Lounge offers an extensive variety of Dilmah teas, from which you can choose for your high tea experience. This is not only the afternoon tea to rock up to in jeans, for a casual munch, it’s also befitting for a special occasion such as a hen party or birthday celebration, a long-overdue catch-up with a good friend, or simply a celebration to mark the end of the week.
Surprisingly, despite the impressive creativity and thought that’s been put into every element of the High Tea, it remains one of the most competitively priced out there at only QAR 119 per person.
The intimate setting and cozy couches make for a chic weekend treat with your friends — we recommend it as a post-shopping affair, with the hotel's convenient location being connected to City Center Shopping Mall.
An after-lunch-before-dinner kind of meal, high tea is the less fancy sister of afternoon tea. Traditionally it was served in high tables, intended to be taken standing or whilst seated in high dining chairs for workers, hence the name 'high' tea. Now what only sets high tea apart from afternoon tea is the inclusion of heavy and savoury dishes like beef wellington for this instance, in the spread.
On entering Caramel Lobby Lounge, guided by your waiter, your first stop will be the extensive tea station. The range of teas on offer at Caramel Lobby Lounge’s tea station is impressive, and you are allowed to have a little taste of as many as you like before you make the important and taxing decision about which one to commit to.
Imagine warm, buttery, slightly crumbly scones smothered in cream and homemade strawberry jam…Close your eyes and conjour up an image of the perfect sandwich, with soft bread and a tasty filling with a twist: Coronation Chicken with green apple ever-so-slightly curried mayo; foie gras mousse with smoked duck and cranberry jam; truffled egg; cucumber textured mint cream cheese; roast beef with baby spinach, celery and onion jam
Getting the opportunity to watch the chefs carving their creations directly at the table will be a spectacle in itself. The liquid nitrogen meringue infused with Ceylon tea with Apple Pie and Vanilla, served with passion fruit sauce and mixed berries, perhaps, is the element of Caramel high tea that will make you frequent this place.
The lounge also features live piano music infusing an air of elegance to the atmosphere. And as the sun sets, the ambiance becomes even more intimate than what it was during the day.
