A tea pet is an optional accessory that can make your tea party much more fun. When you need to rinse your tea, instead of dumping the water away, you can pour the water over the tea pet instead. This is supposed to be a good luck thing to do during the tea ceremony.
Over time, feeding the teapet will produce nice tea smells and distinctive colors. When you hit this teapet with hot water, the color of the teapet changes as well, adding to the entire tea experience. Tea pets are usually made of clay and glazed over. You can find all sorts of different designs and colors. Some people even have more than one tea pet! It is considered good luck if you take care of your tea pet and it "gives life". So next time you're at a Tea Ceremony, be sure to bring along your Tea Pet for good luck!
