The Burj Al Arab Hotel is one of the most prestigious; often voted as the world’s most luxurious hotel, it offers its guests an experience like no other, with its distinctive sail-shaped exterior,  plush rooms and even the option of a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce. With that in mind, it came as no surprise to us at FOUR that the Burj Al Arab tea lounge has just taken the title of “Best Afternoon Tea” in Timeout Dubai’s, 2013 Restaurant Awards.

Newby Tea itself is a brand of luxury. One of the most decorated international  premium tea brands, it has a wealth of accolades including awards from the North American World Tea Championship.

Interestingly, Newby is also leading the crusade in preserving the artistic heritage and unique  culture of tea. The company has invested in a multimillion dollar collection of some of the world’s finest tea accessories and artefacts, dating from 6th century until the present day. The collection, FOUR is told, features objects including those created by the great masters and craftsmen of their time in silver, ceramic and other metals for the Emperors, Kings and Aristocracy - a private collection considered as one of the largest in the world.

With Newby Tea's slew of marquee customers worldwide, including: Blenheim Palace, Wimbledon, Lords Cricket Ground and Gleneagles in the UK, Zabeel Saray, Jumeirah Hotels in Dubai and The Opera House and The Continental Hotel in Oslo, the award-winning tea lounge at the Burj Al Arab Hotel really is the perfect home for world-renowned Newby Tea – Congratulations to you both from FOUR!
