Terracotta Dimpled Piglet Tea Pets

Fashioned out of terracotta, similar to the Zisha teapots, these tea pets are meant to be nourished with tea. Traditionally, they take their place on the tray with the teapot. As they are nourished, the porous terracotta absorbs the oils, flavors, and aromas of the tea and develops a patina over time. Legend has it that, as with raising and caring for a live pet, the soul of the tea pet grows with more care and nourishment. That is likely why these little figurines appreciate in value when they have a rich, shiny patina.

Our piglets come in a variety of colors; each with its own significance.

Black – Wealth ( pronounced as Cái )

Purple – Happiness ( pronounced as Xǐ )

Red – Prosperity ( pronounced as Fú )

Green – Fortune (祿pronounced as Lu)

Yellow – Longevity ( 寿pronounced as Shòu ) 

Each piglet is approximately 4 cm w X 3 cm H 

Take home one or the whole litter; these tea pets are sure to enhance your experience with our fine teas.
