Dim Sum Guide

Dim Sum is a tradition that started on Cantons famous Silk Road a super long time ago. Farmers would stop into the tea houses for a little drink and relaxation. At first it was inappropriate to serve food with tea but once they realized that tea actually aided in digestion, little plates (dim sum) were added to the tea, also called Yum Cha. Dim Sum literally means “to touch the heart”. When you have dim sum it is served with tea and is traditionally served on Sunday morning to early afternoon.
