The story of Afternoon Tea

In the 1840's, Anna Maria Russel, Duchess of Bedford, initiated the custom of Afternoon Tea to fill the gap between breakfast and dinner that came to be served later and later by the late Georgian era.

Towards the end of the 19th century, Caroline Astor, mother of St. Regis founder John Jacob Astor IV, elevated it to a new level by introducing the ritual of Afternoon Tea at dignified gatherings with intimate friends at her house in Manhattan. The St. Regis New York continued the tradition, turning it into a timeless celebration from the day the hotel opened in 1904 until today.

Afternoon Tea at The St. Regis Doha is celebrated every day at the Sarab Lounge from 2:30pm. A total indulgence of the senses, Sarab Lounge’s Afternoon Tea offers a selection of delicious pastries & sandwiches, creamy rolls, freshly baked cookies and scrumptious cakes paired with a collection of more than 100 exclusive teas from around the world curated by TWG.
