taitai
 n.— «Wealthy taitais, the fashionably dressed wives of powerful men, take breaks from their shopping marathons and spa visits to try costly varieties of tea and nibble the occasional har gau, a shrimp dumpling, or kwun tong gau, a shark’s fin dumpling in a rich broth.» —“Dim sum is bad? Hong Kong bites back” by Keith Bradsher in Hong Kong International Herald Tribune (Paris, France) Apr. 28, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
