“Tea Pets” is a movie made by Gary Wang, who also directed “The Guardian Brothers”. The term “tea pets” refers to Chinese lucky charms, which are loved and collected by tea drinkers in China.
Tea lovers who brew their tea in a traditional way, always ‘wake up’ the leaves by rinsing them in the first session. Tea resulting from this brew is always discarded. Because it’s a waste, tea drinkers generally pour them over these little tea pets on their tea table. It’s known that the more often you pour tea over them, the shinier they become! In the Tea Pets movie, these lucky charms come to life and embark on their own adventures.
