Product Description

This charming Tea Set is made of Ceramic and features a vividly portrayed Magpie Forecasting Good News Design. The set consists of one Gaiwan, one Pitcher, one Tea Caddy, and 6 Cups. It comes in a beautiful gift box that is perfect whether you are giving it to yourself or to someone special on your gift list.

The Magpie (xi que 喜 鹊) is considered by the Chinese to forecast good news. It is also a symbol for happiness, since the first character is the same word as happy (xi 喜). One can say "there is a happy bird (magpie) on the tip of the plum branch" as xi shang mei shao (喜上梅稍) which sounds exactly like saying xi shang mei shao (喜上眉稍) which means "happiness up to one's eyebrows". This expression means "very happy". A pair of magpies symbolizes marriage based on an ancient legend concerning two heavenly lovers, the Oxherd and the Weaver Girl/Maiden (Qixi 七夕).
