Chinese Tea Ceremony

“The Chinese Tea Ceremony is our tradition to pay respect and receive blessings from the elders in our family,” Lydia says. “We serve tea to our elders as a sign of respect, and our elders drink the tea as a sign of acceptance. After the tea ceremony, we give out red packets of money to younger relatives as a blessing from us.”
