Chinese New Year is a time for giving; whether in the form of the popular, traditional red packet filled with money (红包 hóngbāo); or in the form of other, material goods. It’s a tradition that people will give New Year gifts to passing their best wishes. It is an act of respect and gratefulness in Chinese culture.
Normally, friends do not exchange New Year’s gifts with each other. However, it’s common to buy a small item or get a red envelope for a friend’s child. It’s also quite common to visit friends during the New Year celebration. When visiting friends, it’s considerate to bring fruits and other foods or gifts with you to enjoy the visit.
One of the best gift during Chinese New Year besides fruits were tea. Tea has a special place in Chinese culture, and even if your hosts aren’t Chinese, tea seems to be a universal language. This year we at eRayn3 has look around and found one of the best tea gifts for this Chinese New Year in town were available in Purple Cane.

Among one of the gift box that we at eRayn3 found it presentable and affordable were Best of Luck Tea Gift Set which priced at RM 49.90. One of the item that we love in this tea gift set were it’s Celadon Tea Pot and Celadon Tea Cups. This tea pot and tea cups were beautifully crafted with a red Koi fish on each of it. The Koi fish (in trad. Chinese: 錦鯉魚) symbolizes prosperity, wealth and success to Chinese .
