Life in Doha seems to revolve around eating. We have visited a few restaurants around town (particular when we first arrived and were staying at a hotel), but recently we have generally been enjoying cooking and eating in. Afternoon high teas are numerous and populous across Doha. I was intrigued about the Royal Arabic High Tea at Al Jalsa lounge, located at the Sharq hotel, an Arabic-style hotel which I had heard was famed for it’s opulent decor and lavish restaurants. Below are the photos of our decadent afternoon of canapés, scones, pastries and of course, Arabic sweets. I particularly enjoyed the fruity, fragrant Oolong tea blend.. almost challenges my love for the Earl Grey, but not quite!
