When making Chinese tea the traditional way, it's a common to first rinse the leaves before you make tea of it. The tea liquor resulting from this rinse is then used to preheat the teaware as well. Because it's a bit of a waste to discard the tea, tea masters love to pour the tea over a tea pet. Usually the creature is put on a tea tray/table that has a drain, so they don't make a mess.

 
Mostly tea mascots are just artifacts that add a little fun to your tea experience. 
 
This item is a handmade clay tea pet in the shape of a cicada sitting on a piece of bamboo plate.
