Cheung Chau Island (Part 2 – Food and Drink)

Yesterday I wrote a post about taking a day trip to Cheung Chau Island while I was in Hong Kong. But I didn’t show you everything, so today, I bring you more Cheung Chau fun!

First, I have some pictures of the dim sum I ate for brunch on Cheung Chau.

Look at all those steaming backets filled with various goodies.

In the full post: chicken feet, shrimp dumplings and gaiwan cups.

Chicken feet... I must admit, these were not my cup of tea, but I'm glad that I tried it out!

Shumai. If I remember correctly, these were made with chicken, or at least I was told that they were made with chicken.

Har gow, shrimp dumplings.

A little later, my friend and I stumbled into a cute little tea shop. Tea being my favorite beverage, I couldn’t resist the chance to sit down and try a few free samples. I ended up walking away with some ginseng oolong tea leaves and a gaiwan cup to brew them in.

Teapots galore. Let's making tea!

This kind of cup is called a gaiwan (lit. lidded cup) and it's used to brew tea in small amounts. After brewing, they put the tea into the even smaller cups at the bottom of the photograph.

Making some tea. He started by washing the cup and tea leaves before brewing the tea.
