Description

Material: Yixing Zisha clay Dimensions: 111x100x64mm Origin: China Description: The tea pet is a small clay figurine that is placed on your tea table, joining you for some tea. Just like Yixing teapots made of the same clay, tea pets are unglazed & are mostly monochromatic with a rough surface, that is better to absorb the tea. A tea pet is typically placed on a tea tray & has tea poured over it during tea time. Due to the tea pet's unglazed nature, the figurine absorbs some of the tea, resulting in the tea pet changing color over time, as well as building up a tea scent. The price is for one unit only. To make it squirt: 1. Heat the tea pet with hot water. Changes in heat bilges make the air expel from the tea pet. The hot air inside the pet expands & can't all fit inside so some of it comes out of the hole. 2. Cool it in cold water. Put the tea pet in cold water for 15-20 minutes to make the tea pet fully absorb water. The air left in the pet shrinks & sucks water into the empty space inside. 3. Finally, pour boiling water onto the pet directly until it sprays water. Pour over the hot tea to heat up the remaining air inside, which pushes out the water & it squirts!
