* Required Fields

The Gaiwan (Mandarin for covered cup, "zhong" or “cha chung" in Cantonese) has been used in China since about 1350. It consists of saucer, bowl, and lid which are designed to be used together. First place the tea in the bottom of the Chinese Jun Yao Kiln Gaiwan. Pour in enough boiling water to come just under halfway up the cup and immediately drain off by holding the cup and saucer together and using the lid as a strainer to hold back the leaves. Now uncover the leaves and inhale the aroma from the "rinsed" leaves. Next, pour fresh boiling water into the Gaiwan, not directly on to the leaves but down the inside of the cup to set the leaves swirling in the bottom, then drink or pour it to fair cup to make it cooler. Use Chinese Jun Yao Kiln Gaiwan is a wonderful brewing method for any kind of tea. As long as you take care with your water temperature and brewing time. Then all that is needed to prepare tea in this style of gaiwan, since the tea can be brewed and drunk from the same vessel. Alternatively, the gaiwan can be used primarily as a teapot and the tea decanted into either a small pitcher or individual tasting cups.

This Gaiwan is simple looking but very beautiful with its color gradation. I love it! TheGaiwan is also well packaged with my other Gaiwan purchase. It arrived and looked just like it did in the photo. It arrived packed just right for it's journey and arrived as quickly as can be. It was just what I was expecting and I am delighted! Highly recommend this vendor! I will purchase again!!

I like to invite friends to have tea together on weekends.
For convenience, I bought a Gaiwan. This Gaiwan is both beautiful and functional. Comfortable to hold and allow to pour with precision. It's non porous and will not therefore season and improve the flavour of tea. On the plus side that also means that the Gaiwan may be used to brew various types of tea as you wish. Especially suitable for Kung Fu tea. I like to invite friends to have tea together on weekends.
