Tea pets, also known as “tea lover’s pets” and “tea friends,” are small clay figures that tea drinkers use during tea ceremonies and often for decor as a sign of good luck. Originating in Jiangsu Province, China, tea pets are most often made of Yixing clay and are unglazed giving them the same feel as a Zisha teapot or teacup.
Typically, tea pets are placed on tea trays and have tea poured over them during tea ceremonies. Tea pets come in many different figures including mythical creatures and people.
Good quality. Cute and adorable. Add some extra fun while enjoying my tea.
