‘Sydney’s Yum-cha’ is a three-part miniseries, celebrating the culture of yum-cha. Told by members of the Chinese migrant community, yum-cha to many feels nostalgic. It has always been messy and chaotic. But that’s the appeal. Trolleys rolling with steaming bamboo baskets, paper dockets stained with tea and rumbling lazy-susans, kids fighting for the last siu-mai. Under the lens of analogue film, this documentary is a nostalgic perspective into the beauty of yum-cha in Sydney. The episodes dive into: history and ubiquity of yum-cha in Sydney; tea etiquette; and how yum-cha chaos is organised.
