Availability: In stock

Handmade Yixing Clay Tortoise Tea Pet is a type of Chinese traditional craft which is keeping by tea lovers for adding interest to their tea time. The way that tea lovers nourish a tea pet is quite similar to the way that they nourish a Yixing clay teapot. It is an incredibly time-consuming process. You need often pour left-over tea liquid on this Handmade Yixing Clay Tortoise Tea Pet, and use a tea brush to wipe the surface of the tea pet to help it absorbing the tea liquid evenly. Tea pet should be only rinsed with water and avoid use of soap or any dishwashing liquid, to ensure a progressive increase in the fragrance and color of the tea. After prolonged maintenance, months to years, the tea pet will absorb the tea, and the appearance of it will become glossier along with aroma of tea. Appreciating tea is not simply a process of brewing to quench thirst, but for the pleasure in the process. Arranging on the tea tray , and sharing the tea liquid with them adds to your pleasure.

Lovely little tortoise
Super cute!! Really tiny but all in all i like it. I looked at a lot of tortoise, but chose this one because of the tortoise with smile. It is so adorable and the craftsmanship, the intricate details of making this so lifelike is uncanny. It is heavy duty for the design and an absolute BARGAIN for the price! So I love it.
