New Arabesque Afternoon Tea at the Four Seasons Amman

Arabesque Afternoon Tea at Four Seasons AmmanHeading to Jordan to see the rose-red city of Petra and float in the Dead Sea? The capital city of Amman makes a great base for exploring the country’s natural and historic wonders. The Four Seasons Hotel Amman is one of the top hotels in town, hands down. And while bunking down in luxury, don’t miss one of the hotel’s newest offerings: Afternoon Tea with an Arabesque Twist.

Instead of finger sandwiches, shortbread and clotted cream, you’ll be able to taste Middle Eastern delicacies like mini saj rolls, cheese-stuffed kubbeh, and mixed Oriental sweets. Date and pistachio scones are served with ashta and asal, the Middle East version of clotted cream and honey, and Earl Grey tea is replaced with Arabic, Turkish or white coffee made with rose water; or Bedouin tea with mint, cardamom or sage. Served on traditional Bedouin tableware, the Arabesque Afternoon Tea is available everyday from 4:00 to 7:00 pm in the hotel’s lobby lounge.
