Three Different definitions for 'Afternoon Tea' in Hong Kong 「下午茶」在香港的三種定義

In the dining capital, Hong Kong, there are THREE different meanings for the 'afternoon tea'......

Discounted foods at the DIM SUM RESTAURANTS
After lunch time, for attracting more customers, the DIM SUM RESTAURANTS have the 'afternoon tea time'.  During 2:00PM-4:00PM, customers can enjoy the same but largely discounted dim sum.

Local style afternoon tea sets in the TEA CAFES
Hong Kong citizens enjoy their tea break at about 3:15PM.  For serving the customers, Hong Kong's TEA CAFES (Cha Chan Tan茶餐廳) have different types of cheap but tasty afternoon tea sets.  From 2:00PM-6:00PM, you just need to pay about 25-40HKD to enjoy the toast plus tea, dumplings noodle plus coffee etc.

English high tea at the HOTELS
At the HOTELS, afternoon tea means the traditional and elegant English high tea.  Although Hong Kong has reunited with China, you can still enjoy the very good English high tea at the famous Peninsula Hotel.

 

在「美食之都」香港,「下午茶」在三種不同的食肆有著不同的意思……

在中式酒樓的意思–打折點心和炒粉麵飯
午市過後,上班和上學的各自回到辦公室和課室,中式酒樓客流大減。為了吸納一些有閒階級,下午二時起,中式酒樓會有特價的「下午茶」時段,茶客點的和吃的是一樣的食品,只是價錢便宜了一半。遊客只要在繁忙的午市的時段忍口,等待「二時入席」,就可享有優惠。

在茶餐廳的意思–便宜的下午茶餐
香港人在正午吃過午餐後不久,就要在下午三點十五分左右「飲啖茶,食個包」,香港人叫這餐下午茶為「三點三」。徇眾要求,香港的茶餐廳推出多款有多士或即食麵配上奶茶或咖啡的茶餐,收費多由25至40元。遊客們只要到「總有一間在你身旁」的茶餐廳,就可一嘗港式「三點三」!

在大酒店的意思–高級的英式下午茶
大酒店的下午茶時段,就會為有閒階級奉上精緻的傳統英式下午茶。茶具、餅食和紅茶帶出濃濃的英式殖民地風情。香港最有名的英式下午茶,在九龍半島酒店,港島區則有國金商場的Twinings。遊客想到大名鼎鼎的半島酒店嘆茶,多要排隊耐心等候,隨時等到華登初上,仍是「等了又等」,要明天再接再勵!
