This is a Chinese wedding tea set made in the colour of Chinese red, symbolizing good fortune and bright future. The prominent Chinese character of the design on both of the teapot and tea cups is the Shuang-Xi (双喜), or double happiness in Chinese, against the background of the dragon and phoenix which are the symbols of male and female power in the Chinese mythology.
The tea set is traditionally used during the Chinese wedding ceremony to Jing-Cha (敬茶) - the new couple offering teas to the elderly from families of both sides to pay their respect. It is also a cultural statement to remind the newly wedded of their responsibility to take care of the elderly when they are old and fragile just like they will be looked after by their descendants.
2 X tea cup of 115 ml
