What is a tea pet for?

Tea pets are very common in China: tea lovers usually place them on the gongfu cha tray and pour out the leftover tea over them.

The pets symbolize good luck, fortune and happiness; they also decorate the table and lighten up the tea ceremony.

Tea pets are made of clay, unglazed with a rough surface. They are mostly monochromatic, but fancy ones can be enriched with a few notes of colour. They are so cute that can easily become collector's items!
