Say Hi to the Little Dim Sum Warriors! 和小小点心侠们 打招呼！
点心 (diǎn xīn in Mandarin and dim sum in Cantonese) are basically what Chinese people call snacks, but the words literally mean ‘a little bit of heart’. You’ll understand why when you try the many beautiful and delicious types of dim sum out there. Ask your family to take you for a traditional “yumcha” brunch (where you eat dim sum and drink lovely Chinese tea) this weekend!
点心（普通话diǎn xīn，广东话dim sum）是华人对于非正餐茶点的泛称，这个词字面上的意思是“一点点心意”。你如果有机会品尝市面上各种精致美味的点心，你就会知道这名字取得真好。 这个周末何不请你的家人带你去试试传统的“饮茶”早午餐（吃点心与喝中国茶的地方）！
