WHAT IS A TEA PET?

Tea Pets are small ceramic figures that are apart of the traditional Chinese tea ceremony known as gong fu cha. These little creatures sit atop the tea tray during the ceremony. They originated during the 13th century in China.

It is believed that when you first adopt a tea pet, it has no soul. However over time, pouring tea over the pet gives it its soul. When pouring leftover tea over the tea pet, make sure it is completely covered. Doing this over time the tea pet will absorb the aroma and color of the tea and give it its unique characteristics. Plus they’re good luck!
