The ox rises at dawn to plow the rice paddies and rests at sunset to ensure a swift harvest. The ox’s body is transformed into a teapot. Golden rice ears embellish the horns, a golden heron graces the lid knob, and the sides are embossed with rice-shaped water drops. The cups are decorated with auspicious waves of grain and sunlight. The tea set as a whole symbolizes diligence, time and good fortune.
