Tea Animal with Spots
This unique tea pet, a shaggy, small-eyed animal with white spots, is made by Burien artist Alexis St. John. Over time, as tea and water are poured over this figure, it will develop a deeper hue and patina--except for the glazed white spots, which will remain white.
Size: 1.5" high x 2.5" long x 1.25" wide
We are very lucky to be able to source and sell this unusual and delicious black tea from Vietnam. It has some spicy complexity reminiscent of Taiwanese Hong Cha, with flavor notes that are unique to teas grown in Vietnam. This is a rolled tea that expands into whole leaves over several delicious infusions. Use boiling or near-boiling water to bring out the full complexity, or cooler water to bring out more sweetness but slightly less aroma.
