What you'll do

Enjoy morning tea: Guangzhou is famous for its exquisite food, especially various categories of dim sums. Normally, you may want to try everything, while we prefer the traditional customs——one bowl and two pieces. Each guest will choose one cup of tea and two kinds of dim sums, and then taste all the dim sums ordered by sharing. Morning tea culture sharing: The reason why morning tea has become a distinct characteristic is because it’s a social activity to strengthen bonds of family and friendship for Cantonese. So apart from food, the experience focus more on sharing culture and lifestyle. How did morning tea develop? Why Cantonese will wash the dishes and cups before the meal? What kinds of dim sums are the most favorite? Why morning tea can be continued till afternoon? How to make order in Cantonese? All your questions can be answered during the experience. Food culture and stories sharing: The differences between the North and the South caused various interesting stories when I live in Guangzhou. I’m appreciated to share these experiences if you are interested in. And wherever you come from, I'm also glad to hear your stories and food culture in your hometown. Local life experience: The teahouse is located in a community with both tradition and fashion. If you are still available after the experience, please come and wander around nearby with me, taking a glimpse into the relaxed local life here.

Holiday

I'm Holiday, a Northern girl addicted to Lingnan culture with experiences of working and living in different cities. In the end, Guangzhou becomes my settlement because of its delicious food. I'm keen on exploring the geographical culture differences reflected by eating habits, and glad to share my experience and stories on integrating in Guangzhou. During the experience, I will bring you to taste the typical Cantonese cuisine, feeling the tea culture atmosphere in Guangzhou, teaching you how to make order in local language, and sharing different food habits between North and South. If there's no available date suits you, and you really want to join this Experience, please contact with me and I'd like to adjust the time as possible as I can. Besides, for the foodies, you can also check and book other two Experiences about Cooking Cantonese Hot Pot and Night Walk and Snack Tour. Apart from being an Experience host, I'm also a writer, a superhost and the Experience Ambassador of Airbnb, so you are welcomed to discuss everything about city life with me! Also interested in hosting an Experience in your city? Then don't miss this chance to communicate with me~

Where you'll be

We will go to the first teahouse inside residential community. Unlike most famous restaurants, there are no large number of tourists, so you can enjoy the purest atmosphere of Cantonese morning tea. All kinds of dim sums here are handmade. Not only can you taste the traditional ones, but also the specialty. Afterwards, guest who's available is welcomed to join the outdoor experience by wandering around the residential area nearby.

More tips

The experience requires all the guests gather at the designated area. Please arrive 5 mins before the starting time. Because some dim sums contain meat and seafood, if you are vegetarian or allergic to these, please inform me in advance. No time available in the morning?
