The perfect companion for your tea time - Meditating Buddha Tea Pet 

A tea pet, also known as a tea lover's pet, is a small clay figure which is kept by some tea drinkers for good luck. Traditionally, tea pets were placed near the tea area joining the tea lover for tea. They were made from similar clay as tea pots and left unglazed as a rough texture able to absorb liquids. Simply pour any remaining water or tea on the pet, "feeding the tea pet"; this ritual is thought to being you good luck. 

How to Use a Tea Pet?
Tea pets are not just a historical tradition, they are fun!  You actually feed your tea pet by pouring any remaining water or tea on your tea pet. You can pour just a little or cover the entire tea pet.  Over time your tea pet will absorb, or "drink", the tea and water and change colors due to the different colors of the tea you drink.
