送上茶禮好過年 Tea makes great gifts this Chinese New Year

送禮,是有些事情觸動我們心靈勾起我們的感情,令我們很想將內心感受如關懷、祝福或感謝表達出來,於是我們就希望通過具體的「送禮物」獻上我們的想念、敬愛、孝順等情誼。尤其在農曆新年這種倍加有感觸的時期,大家都希望趁着團聚的時刻好好表達心意。

送禮要如何送才能讓收禮的人感受禮物的情意,感覺歡喜滿足?以下幾點需要注意:一.勿將家裡多餘東西當作禮物送,或將自己收到的不喜歡之禮物轉送,除非當事者有表示過他喜歡這樣東西。二.可直接問問當事者他喜歡什麼,就專誠為他而辦置。三.購置禮物可不必買包裝太誇張的,過多包裝將會浪費金錢和污染環境。四.送禮最好能夠親手送,表示鄭重與尊敬。不要以為送禮就是把“物質”公式化送上就了事,送禮要真心。五.如果禮物屬於功能性強的,可馬上打開然後“指導”當事者應該怎麼用。

那麼慶祝農曆新年要送什麼禮物呢?最好莫過於是茶葉茶具,它們最為適宜的原因:喝茶比喝一些甜飲品或酒精飲品好處多,過新年時常需要駕駛車子趕路,在旅途中感覺疲勞、要提神醒腦喝茶最有效,不會昏昏欲睡。過年一般吃得太好太多,引起身體不適,必要喝點茶平衡一下體質,每一餐泡壺茶陪伴,喝茶有助促進消化。

過年是放長假的時候,親戚、老朋友時時有聚會串門子,串門子最佳節目就是喝喝茶聊聊天,比單純的吃餅吃糖果好,也比看電視、搓麻將好。邊喝茶邊說話可增進彼此交流,圓滑人與人的關係。
喝茶本來就屬於華人家庭的習俗,以往由於經濟關係,可能喝得比較生活化一點,現今可喝得比較精細一點,準備一些優質茶葉和茶具,讓茶文化的香味增添新年氛圍。


Gift giving is common to us all. When our emotions are touched, or heartstrings tugged, we would eagerly want to express our feelings, such as care, well-wishes and gratitude. Presenting gifts is a means to realize this urge; with gifts, we are turning abstract feelings of longing, respect, filial piety and love into physical action. The intensity of feelings grows as we usher in Chinese New Year; it is an opportunity for us to express our feelings when everyone gets together.

For the art of gift giving, how could we communicate our feelings to the recipients, and make them feel happy and satisfied? Here are some considerations. Firstly, refrain from passing on what others have given you or what you feel are unwanted, unless the recipients have expressed their fondness of the items concerned; secondly, ask the recipients what they like and choose the gifts accordingly; thirdly, avoid flashy and elaborate packaging as this is a waste of money and is unfriendly to our environment; fourthly, present the gifts in person to show your sincerity and respect; lastly, show the recipients the usage after opening the gifts if these are functional items.

So what could be the ideal gifts for Chinese New Year? Tea leaves and tea ware make great gifts because tea is a healthier beverage than sweet or alcoholic drinks. A refreshing beverage, it helps you stay awake should you need to drive a long distance home for Chinese New Year reunion or celebration. Meanwhile, since we tend to eat more than usual during the festive season, taking tea will help adjust our internal system for better balance; have a pot of tea to accompany your meals as tea helps digestion.

Chinese New Year is also a time to catch with friends and relatives. Do so over a cup of tea, rather than just snacking on festive cookies and pastries, watching television or playing mahjong. Great conversation accompanied by a good pot of tea is a sure way to deepen interpersonal relationships.

Tea has been an indispensable part of Chinese families. In the olden days, however, tea used to be taken in a no-frills manner when life was not as sophisticated. Today, there is certainly room for a more refined way to enjoy tea. With a little premium tea leaves and exquisite tea ware, you will be able to enjoy a Chinese New Year infused with the flavour of the tea culture!
