Don’t you have those days when you just want to sit back with a cuppa tea, read, and not think about that endless list of things you have to get done? Or if you’re catching up with girlfriends and you want a place that’s relatively quiet, and serves a good selection of tea and coffee?
When our dear friend Disha was in town for the weekend, we decided to check out Argo Tea in Citywalk. The development in Jumeirah 1 is fairly new and has numerous eateries which is perfect to sit outdoors and while away the hours people watching.
Originally from Chicago, this City Walk location is Argo Tea’s first venture into Dubai and fifth in the Middle East. Thanks to a competition that I won on BBC Good Food magazine, we were gluts for the evening and had between us – six teas (with many more tasters), two coffees, a couple of croissants, empanadas, and we even took some food home! #happydays
They have a wide selection of teas – green, black, red, white, fruity, herbal, hot, cold – take your pick. My favourites were Ginger Peach and Mango Mambo. For those who prefer coffee instead, Argo Tea serves Illy, which you can’t go wrong with!
Cheese and mushroom, and spinach empanadas
Chocolate croissant and green tea. Because one negates the other!
From all the treats we took home – the sandwiches (Turkey cheese, and Halloumi sundried tomato with an olive tapenade) were fantastic, as was the strawberry banana parfait.
Juggling all those cups of tea, I forgot to take a picture of the store itself! There is a huge wall of teas which you can pick from, or even create your own bags to take home. They also sell a whole range of accessories to recreate your perfect tea-party at home!
We’ll definitely be going back to try the rest of their offerings and recommend you do too! Until next time, happy cups of tea!
We miss you D! Come back soon! xx
