This has been on my list for awhile. I grew up drinking tea and just love the tradition of having light snacks and tea in the afternoon.
The the cute little sandwiches, the wonderful scones (my favorite) with clotted cream & jam and finally miniature eclairs and bite size sweets!! The tea terrace is Alice in Wonderland inspired with vibrant colors and oversized chairs!! (More in my stories) I was in heaven! .
Explore the Hara Forest
The mangrove forests of Qeshm or Hara forests are among the wonders of Qeshm Island, located in the Khavaran Strait, between Qeshm Island and Hormuzgan Province in south Iran. These forests are not specific to Qeshm Island, as they also extend to Pohl Port, the Hormuz Island and Khamir Port. Covering an area of about 2,400 hectares, the Hara Forest of Qeshm is the largest forest among Iran's 8 Hara forests. The Hara forests constitute a national protected area and an international lagoon, registered as a UNESCO biosphere reserve.
Locally known as "Hara" or "Harra", the scientific name of this mangrove plant is Avicennia Marina, after the great Iranian Physician and biologist (Abu Ali Sina or Avicenna). Some local people believe that the trees are a miracle work created by the tears shed by Adam.
The Hara Forest has some extraordinary features that exceed our common knowledge about forests with dense and congested trees. This is actually the home of salt-friendly 3 to 8 meters tall mangrove trees with external roots that grow in tropical and sub-tropical coastal regions (rivers, estuaries, and bays). During high tide, trees get partially submerged in water, then reappear during low tide for only a few hours (for exact tidal time refer to this site). All these ecological conditions also provide the best natural environment for some marine species such as reptiles, aquatic snakes, arthropods, fish species and migratory birds including herons, flamingos, pelicans, and angler eagles.
Another wonderful fact about Hara Forest is the natural filtration system of the root of the trees which refines the salt water and produces fresh water, making the forest independent of freshwater. This property is formed by natural selection over millions of years.
These trees play a vital role for indigenous people in producing lumber, charcoal, paper pulp, honey, artificial silk, alcohol, and sugar. They also have medical and cosmetic uses.
Boating tour is very popular among tourists who want to visit Hara Forest. Imagine riding a boat and moving in the turquoise-blue water of the Persian Gulf. In the beginning, everything is like a normal boat ride unt
