Flavours | 3:33 mins

Ever tried drenching your rice in a hot broth of tea? Sounds strange? But for the Wong family, that’s exactly how they love to have their meals. The family gathers twice a month to cook and eat thunder tea rice together, using the same recipe that has been passed down three generations.

Thunder Tea Rice, also known as Lei Cha, is a traditional Hakka dish that consists of a hearty serving of rice, chopped vegetables, tofu, peanuts and a huge bowl of fragrant tea. PS. If you still need more convincing to dig in, the Wong sisters swear by the dish’s slimming properties!
