A traditional (usually daytime, sometimes nighttime) Chinese meal, consisting of several small courses (dim sum) and Chinese tea.
Origin: From 飲茶,
Yum cha, also known as Ban ming, is a Chinese style morning or afternoon tea, which involves drinking Chinese tea and eating dim sum dishes. Yum cha in Cantonese Chinese literally means "drink tea", while ban ming is a more poetic "tasting of tea". In the U.S. and UK, the phrase dim sum is often used in place of yum cha; in Cantonese, dim sum refers to the wide range of small dishes, whereas yum cha, or "drinking tea", refers to the entire meal.
