Yum Cha is one of the most popular Chinese tradition for family gathering in holidays. Families can have a nice chat with each others, read magazines and newspapers. Sometimes, my families discuss family issues and I found that it is even more faster to come to decision. :>
There are a lot of DimSum (點心) being served in restaurant. My favorites are Steamed rice-flour rolls, Steamed pork dumpling, Steamed shrimp dumpling and many others. You can see below a photo I took this morning that a waiter is carrying a trolley around. The trolley contains a varities of DimSum. A list of DimSum names is placed at the front of the trolley.
By the way, do you know the meaning of putting the teapot-cover over the rim and the handle? I guess you get it right. It is a traditional practice to ask for refill the teapot.
