Republican Chinese High Tea:

Chinese afternoon tea is a legacy and tradition cherished by Chinese Emperors throughout history. With roots stemming back to the Republican Period – when the concept of Chinese desserts collided with Western Etiquette – Chinese Afternoon Tea is a millennia old tradition that we are proud to uphold and sustain. We serve authentic Chinese Dim Sum, a delicacy and culture said to have begun in tea rooms in the 19th century – but legend indicates that the specialty dates back to the Tang Dynasty era from 618 to 907 A.D. It is said that Tang China could hold quite the party, with upper class banquets prioritizing “crispy” desserts featuring fresh fruit, cheese, frozen crispy flower cakes, and “Yulu Tuan” ice cream desserts – not forgetting the famously translucent “douhua” (Tofu Pudding). During the Tang Dynasty’s reign, Meng Hui wrote that humanity would one day return to the imperial city of Chang’an and immerse ourselves in the beautiful writings and popular afternoon tea delicacies selected by the Tang and Qing dynasties collectively. We at The Jockey Clubhouse are proud to be bringing this promise to life with authentic Chinese High Teas that escort our guests back thousands of years.
