Hi-tea in Hainan

Our visit to ancestry hometown of a village in Wenchang, Hainan – China uncovered an archetype Hainanese hi-tea.

I wonder if my forefathers actually learnt from the British forces on how to make a good tea, or inherently brought with them the skills during migration to Singapore.

A typical afternoon tea break, strolling along the non-tar roads of Wenchang catching up on gossips with relatives,

Uncovered hot milk tea with artbuah (just like eebuah), custard pie, sponge cake, and french toast with condensed milk.

I would fly there again just to have afternoon tea. It’s really that special.

    Hello May, I went back to Hainan island with my parents 20 years ago! Sanya. I remembered we had breakfast eating toast with butter and coffee. Simple and good. Seeing your photos brought back memories.
