Yum Cha (飲茶 jam2 caa4) is a traditional Cantonese culture. In the old days, people got up and would go to Cantonese restaurant 茶樓, having their breakfasts (we call it 飲早茶 – drink morning tea). Surely 飲茶 is not only drinking tea, but also have (Cantonese 廣東) dim sum 點心. Nowadays, we have more choices for breakfast (e.g. McDonalds) in Hong Kong. However, 飲茶 is still a good option for the people who want to be relaxed.
Have you tried 飲茶 before? After watching the videos, you can try to order your favourite dim sum. (See the dim sum menu)
Shrimp dumplings are one of the dim sum you have to order!
However, before ordering dim sum, don’t forget to order a pot of tea first.
