Tea Pet - Mimic Treats
These adorable little guys were sculpted by Nena Magica and created with the help of a kickstarter in 2022. These are slip cast ceramic and hand made right here.
Now they are available for you! These little mimics will sit on your tea tray or wherever you wish to put them and keep an eye on things. Don't worry, they won't try to eat you since they're so small.
What is a tea pet? In 13th century China, the use of ceramic tea pets came to be during tea ceremonies. Tea pets sit on your tea tray and you "feed" it leftover tea or the water used to warm up your teapot by pouring it over them, which nourishes them. Traditionally they are sculpted as animals or shaped like Buddhist characters, and tea lovers have generally have tea pets for good luck and to decorate the tea tray.
