A tea pet is a small sculpture most often made from clay, originating in Chinese tea culture, that enhances the tea-drinking experience. You're probably not going to feed your dog or cat tea, but you can feed tea to a tea pet! The sculpture — often a kind of animal — is placed on a tray, and "fed" by pouring tea over it. Over time, the tea changes a clay tea pet's color, texture, and scent, providing a sense of continuity and harmony: a well-loved tea pet is proof you know your tea!

Some tea pet collectors keep separate tea pets for separate types of tea, to maintain consistent characteristics.

This sweet fox is made of color-changing resin, and measures about 3 x 2.5 inches. Please note: resin, as opposed to clay, will not be altered over time by tea — but the color-changing effect is unique to resin tea pets.
