The perfect size (150ml) for one or two people, this glazed Yixing gaiwan is great as a simple, no frills brewing vessel.
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.

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.
Really great packaging, speed and product. Very impressed.
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!
Thanks again for the “personalized” delivery! I haven’t used the set yet as it is an Xmas gift, but I did look it over and it was of sound quality. Thank you!
Didn’t get to use it, it fell on my countertop and broke.😞
I love this little Gaiwan!
I was a little skeptical , but truly the whole tea drinking experience is better!
I wouldn't use it to Macro brew, any tea...its made to be used when you can take your time, and enjoy it. Must have as far as I'm concerned...
