17914299038_427d7b569b_cHello from Qatar ^-^

It’s a hazy 110F today (even in the shade)…but it’s beautiful and calm inside the Tea Lounge at Four Seasons Doha. Care to join me for afternoon tea? It’s the property’s 10th anniversary so they’re doing a special afternoon tea. Table for two, please.

17914310338_aab5802cb8_cI like that corner table in the small room to the left. Well-lit and private.

Green, black, oolong, and rooibos are offered alongside blended fruit tisanes. They also have fresh herbal infusions including mint and ginger, and three signature tea blends on the menu:

  • Four Seasons Spring Blend | Chinese green tea, rose petals, pear, and strawberry
  • Four Seasons Fall Blend | Ceylon, oolong, bergamot, and vanilla
  • Four Seasons Winter Blend | Darjeeling, keemun, jasmine, and golden calendula
