History of Dim Sum
  Teahouses sprung up along the famous Silk Road to accommodate tired travelers and catered for the exhausted farmers, after their work in the fields. They would go to the teahouse for afternoon tea, relaxing conversation and regain sustenance.

It took several centuries for the culinary art of Dim Sum to develop.
At first, it was considered inappropriate to combine tea with food,
because people believed it would lead to excessive weight gain.
The unique culinary art of Dim Sum originated with the Cantonese in southern China, who over the centuries transformed Yum Cha from a relaxing respite to a loud and happy dining experience.
