ABOUT Lao Xiang Hao

Originally a Cantonese custom, dim sum is inextricably linked to the Chinese tradition of"yum cha" or drinking tea. Teahouses sprung up to accommodate weary travelers journeying along the famous Silk Road .Rural farmers, exhausted after long hours working in the fields, would also head to the local teahouse for an afternoon of tea and relaxing conversation.

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: a famous 3rd century Imperial Physician claimed this would lead to excessive weight gain.
