Tea plays an important role in Chinese wedding rituals including betrothal, matchmaking, doweries and entertaining guests. "In the Ming Dynasty, a bride to be had to drink tea when she accepted the offer of marriage. It was a common belief that once the seeds of a tea tree was planted, it could not be moved.
