Dim Sum 101

It is believed that Dim Sum has been around for a few centuries now. Many have associated Dim Sum with Cantonese cuisine but that is not the case as it is believed to have originated from Northern China. Back in the day Dim Sum was only made available to the emperor as dishes like Dim Sum are considered a luxury only a few could afford. As time progressed, it became available in tea houses too along the prominent Silk Road.

Fun fact, dim sum directly translates to “touch the heart” and linked to the Cantonese phrase “yum cha” which simply means drink tea. A word that is oh so common in today’s vocabulary.
