Gaiwan

    Product Details

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


    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. 

    Also available as a gift set with two matching cups.

    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.
