Tea Pets

Tea Pets

Small figures (usually unglazed ceramic) designed to sit on a Chinese tea table and have tea poured over them in the course of brewing. Over time, the unglazed ceramic figures are expected to absorb color and texture from the tea, changing in appearance and developing a lovely tea patina. Tea pets very greatly in the amount they change over time, depending on the conditions in the kiln and the materials of composition. They are often whimsical or mythic, and add unique touches of personality to your tea ware collection.
