This bright white porcelain Gaiwan features a beautiful deep red trim with a luxurious, velvety finish. It is both functional and stylish and would be a wonderful item for a tea connoisseur.
Invented during the Ming dynasty, a Gaiwan consists of a bowl, lid and saucer. Traditionally porcelain Gaiwans are used for steeping and drinking green and white loose leaf tea, however, you can enjoy any tea type with this Gaiwan.
Remember, you can re-steep your tea leaves 2-3 times when using a Gaiwan, ensuring you get the most out of every tea leaf.

- Rinse the cup with warm water and place the required amount of tea in the Gaiwan cup.
- Add water at the correct temperature to the cup.
- Once the tea has steeped proficiently, pick up the cup and saucer and position the lid slightly askew, just enough to allow the tea to pour out while still retaining the leaves, and enjoy the tea infusion.
