What’s a Tea Pet?
A tea pet (otherwise known as a tea lover’s pet) is a small clay figure kept by some tea drinkers for good fortune. They are usually made of zisha or Yixing clay. They are unglazed and mostly monochromatic with a rough surface.
Tea lovers in China “raise a pet” by placing it on the tea tray during tea time and pouring out the tea over it. One of the most popular models for tea pets is the “pee-pee boy”. When it is first soaked in cold water and then showered with hot water, it will squirt out the water that it previously absorbed.
