If there is a single food experience that most represents Hong Kong and the Cantonese people, it is yum cha. In Cantonese it literally means “drink tea,” but it refers to the traditional meal of dim sum accompanied by tea. People normally go for yum cha in the early morning through to lunchtime. Any good yum cha restaurant will have a wide range of tea for you to choose from, along with outstanding dim sum. We recommend ti gwun yum, a fragrant green tea, or Bo-lay, an aged dark tea, as alternatives to the ever-common jasmine tea.
