This stylish, white glazed pottery Gaiwan bowl with a lid and saucer is a great item for a tea connoisseur. The Chinese Gaiwan is used for steeping and drinking loose leaf tea using the traditional Chinese method. Gaiwans are perfect for the preparation and enjoyment of oolong, green and white teas.
Rinse the cup with warm water and place the required amount of tea in the Gaiwan cup. Secondly, 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. The Gaiwan can be used for re-steeping loose leaf tea 2-3 times.
