Combining Chinese traditional Tea culture with Eastern medicine, Hanyilou shop on Beijing's famous tea street Maliandao carries a series of healthy tea pillows.

Tea pillow has a long history in China. Many Chinese in ancient times made simple tea pillows to treat headache and insomnia.

The shop owner, Mr. Zhang, told me they use natural green tea, Oolong tea, or flower tea. All teas are gathered from in natural tea gardens located above Mount Taimu in Fujian Province, and then used to fill the pillows heart.

A fragrant pillow could improve sleep quality, rejuvenate one's mind, and  reduce stress. Prices vary from a small cushion for RMB 118 to an adult pillow at RMB 236.

The shop also displays some cute tea-pet figurines, like the dragon fish and two lions fighting for a ball. All these are symbols of blessing in China. Tea lovers like to raise their tea pets on the tea set, by splashing them with extra water used in teas. Due to the special of the materials used, the pets become shinier the more hot tea they absorb. Prices vary from RMB 15 to RMB 50.
