This little tea pet is made from a green kind of Yixing clay, known as Min Guo Green Clay. It has a wonderful natural appearance and becomes more bright and shinny over time when rinsed regularly with tea.
Frogs are often found near water, and in Chinese Feng Shui theory, water is a source of wealth and luck.
Where to place the frog tea pet?
If you believe in Chinese Feng Shui, or simply find it fun to adhere to its rules, here’s a few some advice.
- Position the frog facing the same direction as you. This will allow it to attract wealth for you.*
- However, don’t let it face towards a door, this will result in wealth ‘leaking away’.
- Don’t block the sight of the frog with items in front of it. This would be regarded as ‘a frog in a well’, meaning that it has tunnel vision, and obviously doesn’t bring any luck.
- Increase your luck by having 3 toad tea pets on your table. Let them face different directions, but still avoid the door.
*Note: some online sources will tell you to let the frog face you. This can be true, but it only applies to a toad Tea Pet with a coin in their mouth, meaning that it brings you wealth. The Tea Pet on this page, it doesn’t have a coin in its mouth, so it needs to face the same direction as you, to attract wealth.
