Cantonese Afternoon Tea - Yum Cha

You will visit a local restaurant with a 1950s atmosphere. Learn about the unique yum cha culture and food, and understand how it was impacted by the British.

Yum cha is a tradition from southern China, especially the Cantonese region.

 

Many movies depicting old Hong Kong or Shanghai begin with a scene showing a man walking into the tea house with his bird cage or cricket box in one hand and smoke pipe in the other. He sits down on his regular seat, orders his regular tea and dim sum, and as he does you hear the sound of pouring water to the cup, waiters loudly taking orders, and people at the table sipping on their tea and reading their newspaper or chatting. This is the traditional yum cha teahouse scene.
