Wedding Tea t-Series Jade Butterfly Handmade White Tea with Lotus Seeds, Longans & Red Dates

0 made it | 0 reviews

At traditional Chinese weddings, the tea ceremony is synonymous with the exchange of vows. Legend has it that placing lotus seeds and red dates in the teapot bring children into the marriage early on and every year thereafter. The addition of longan is a wish for male children. The sweetened tea is believed to bring happiness to the couple and to foster good relations between the bride and her new in-laws. For the newlyweds, the tea service (tea box, along with a lotus leaf — representing harmony and togetherness — and two seashells to signify wealth) is part of the bride’s dowry and becomes a keepsake for the next generation.
