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.
