A tea pet is the pet kept by tea lovers and nourished by tea water. It is a kind of artware made by purple sands or clay. When enjoying the tea, the drinker will smear or sprinkle tea water on the tea pets. As time goes by, the tea pets will be moist with soft luster and tea aroma. Tea pets usually take the shape of mythical Chinese beasts, human figures and small animals to express good wishes.(People's Daily Online)
