History of Dim Sum
Dim Sum was created in China hundreds of years ago to accommodate travellers and work men along the famous Silk Road. It translates as ‘touch the heart’ meaning it was only supposed to be consumed as snacks on the road rather than a heavy meal.
Still, it took several centuries for the culinary art of dim sum to develop. At one time it was considered inappropriate to combine tea with food as a 3rd Century Imperial physician advised that eating food while drinking tea would cause excessive weight gain. However, it was ignored by Southern China disregarded who instead turned the quiet teahouse experience into a lively eating experience, which is also how the term “yum cha” (to drink tea) became synonymous with consuming dim sum. As tea’s ability to aid in digestion and cleanse the palate became known, tea house proprietors began adding a variety of snacks, and the tradition of dim sum was born.
