Gaiwan Gift Set

Product Details

Our sweet Yixing Gaiwan, and two matching cups.

The perfect size (150ml) for one or two people, this glazed Yixing Gaiwan is great as a simple, no frills brewing vessel. Outside unglazed yixing style clay.  Inside glazed white.

Two matching cups are each approximately 40ml.


The gaiwan was originally intended to be used for drinking tea, where you simply bring the cup to your lips and use the lid to prevent the leaves from entering your mouth. However, gaiwans are often used as a brewing vessel, with the decanted tea being served in a separate cup. The lid is held against the cup so that the leaves are filtered out.

Pretty Little Gaiwan

It is a beautiful little teacup with a nice texture to it. It is a it bit smaller than I find useful, so it will probably be a china cupboard decoration. If you don't brew and drink from the gaiwan, the size is likely to be just fine.

Exactly as expected

Well-packed, quick shipping, and the gaiwan and cups were as expected. They’re small, of course, but they’re supposed to be.

Gaiwan set

I recently purchased this Gaiwan set for my birthday and I'm loving it. The quality is great. I've used it with the tea sampler I got as well as some Sake (just for the cups). Overall they are great. I advise you make sure you understand what you're buying when it comes to the size. A Gaiwan is traditionally pretty small. I knew this when purchasing so it wasn't a problem for me. Just check to make sure it will be appropriate for yourself. I highly recommend this product.

Well received Christmas gift

My son studied in China and has many fond memories. I bought this as a gift for him to remind him of his wonderful time there. He absolutely loved the teas and the gsiwan! He said it is the best tea he has tasted and is enjoying several cups of tea everyday. He may have to order more soon. He also very much liked the two postcards he received with the tea and I enjoyed the personal note enclosed. Wonderful!
