A fun little tea pet! Handmade by yixing clay potters with centuries of experience.

Yixing clay is a type of clay from the region near the city of Yixing in Jiangsu Province, China, used in Chinese pottery since the Song dynasty (960–1279). Also known as zisha (宜興紫砂) ware, Yixing pottery is prized because their unglazed surfaces absorb traces of the beverage, creating a more complex flavour. While you won't be drinking from this tea pet, it is still a great way to admire the craftsmanship that was involved.

We also carry authentic Yixing Clay pots to experience the true complex flavors that this clay offers.

1. Place tea pet on tea tray or plate
2. Pour tea rinse on pet
3. Smile and sip tea!

• Material: Yixing Purple Clay
• Size: 7.5cm Tall, 5cm Wide

I'm so delighted with this find! The little tea pet is very cute and will be a wonderful gift for my tea-loving friend! I also purchased a gift box from this shop, along with a couple of teas, and I'm very happy with how it was all packaged together. Shipping was prompt. I would definitely purchase from this shop again.
