What Is A Chinese Wedding Tea Ceremony?

The Chinese Wedding Tea Ceremony holds a prolific place in Chinese culture. As the tea is shared, couples will take that time to reflect on their journey together, as well as the stories and lives that have come together to bring them to this point. They’ll then serve the tea to their elders, sharing a moment of gratitude for the hard work and sacrifices that have gone into creating and integrating the families.

You can conduct a Chinese wedding tea ceremony at any time. Many choose to use it as a moment of mindful celebration during the wedding itself, or in the engagement and betrothal season(s).

How Does A Chinese Tea Ceremony Work?

The Chinese wedding tea ceremony begins with the groom standing to the right of the ceremony space, and the bride standing on the left. Both will kneel and begin to serve tea to the elders present, creating a moment of recognition and gratitude. After the tea is served, the family members will drink the tea and offer the cups back—often including a token of appreciation or a red envelope with a blessing of well-wishes for the couple.

What Should Couples Wear To A Chinese Tea Ceremony?

Males should consider wearing a red-dyed Chinese mandarin jacket and pant set, or a themed red suit and tie. Women might wear a red floral qipao dress and Han jacket, or a themed cheongsam.
