Yixing Clay “Big Dipper Jin Chan" Tea Mascot Statue for Gong fu Cha tea table
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
Jin Chan (金蟾) is a mythological creature which is three-legged and spits up gold and other forms of wealth. It is thought that when offerings are made to the Jin Chan the roof under which he resides will experience a metoric rise in wealth and good fortune. It's perhaps the most common tea mascot which adorns tea tables in China. Offer the Jin Chan the gift of bathing his body in tea water now and again, and see if it results in good fortune!
This particular Jin Chan bears the mark of the big dipper 北斗七星 on his back in the form of seven colored stars.
