Do you fancy a pot of lovely “Green Tea”? Here is a beautiful and whimsical quality glass teapot that is home to 3 live and lucky Marimo Moss Balls that range from 3/4″ to 1/4″. They float about on a bed of natural shells, abalone, and beach stones. A swirl of live aquatic plant completes this special brew. The Tiny Glass Teapot is just 4″ tall and 4″ wide (at the widest) 6″ wide from handle to spout. It holds about 8.8 oz or 250 ml. A wonderful gift for the naturalist/ tea lover on your list!
About Marimo Balls: These delightful little balls of algae also called Cladophora originate in Lake Akan Japan. They are revered and adopted as “pets” in Japanese homes and offices and are believed to bring good luck. Marimo name is derived from Mari meaning “bouncy play ball” and “mo” meaning underwater plant in Japanese. They require very little care, just place in indirect light, top off or and change the water out every two weeks as needed. They enjoy being gently scuttled around by your finger (or chopstick) as they would by the lake currents, this keeps them green on all sides and healthy.Eventually they propagate by dividing into smaller spheres.
