Our Zenshi Glassware range is as elegant as it is practical.

This exquisite Gaiwan is handmade from ultra-light, heat resistant, borosilicate glass. Gaiwans consist of three parts - a lid, a bowl and a saucer. They are particularly great for brewing Oolong, green and white teas.

The Gaiwan was invented during the Ming dynasty in China. Prior to its invention, tea was brewed and consumed by the Chinese using a special bowl called a ‘Chawan’. The invention of the Gaiwan was a result of innovations in the Chinese tea ritual and tea preparation in general. The introduction of the Gaiwan refined the tea drinking experience in China.



Material - Borosilicate** Glass (heat resistant, light weight and strong)

Function - Perfect for steeping and drinking traditional Chinese tea. Preferred for oolong, green and white teas. 

Cleaning - Hand wash or place securely on the top shelf of your dishwasher

Heating - Microwave safe. 

Size - 9cm H x 10.5cm diameter

Capacity - The maximum glass capacity is 200ml

Usage - Place the required amount of tea in the cup after rinsing the cup with warm water. Add water at the correct temperature to the cup. When the tea is ready, pick the cup with the saucer and position the lid slightly askew just enough to allow the tea to pour out while retaining the leaves. Can be used for resteeping 2-3 times.

Packaging  - Comes in a beautiful Tea Makers of London presentation Box, perfect for a gift.


Upkeep and usage

If the ambient temperature in the kitchen is low, warming up the teapot before use will help the teapot last longer. This will also help the tea to steep more effectively as the water will not lose heat when poured into the teapot.

The glass is less likely to break or shatter if you warm it up gradually. Once you have poured in the boiling water, avoid resting your teapot on cold surfaces. Instead, rest your teapot a trivet or kitchen towel.  


**Borosilicate glass - Borosilicate glass is made mainly of silica (70-80%) and boric oxide (7-13%) with smaller amounts of the alkalis (sodium and potassium oxides) and aluminium oxide.

I love this gaiwan, everything is perfect except the lid is not fit properly, but the customer service is incredibly good, received the order second day after I placed the order online. Thank for the tea samples.
