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 Longquan Celadon 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 Longquan Celadon 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.

    Beautiful

    This gaiwan is wonderful high quality product. I also bought the matching fair cup which is just as impressive.
    My only disappointment was the difficulty and the length of time in the delivery process.

    Beautiful Gaiwan

    I ordered the longquan celadon gaiwan with the fish. It is a beautiful yet simple hand-painted design. The gaiwan has a nice weight to it and it feels sturdy without being bulky. It pours perfectly and I do not have any trouble getting the lid to sit so that I can pour tea. It is a nice sized gaiwan and also very beautiful. It was packaged very securely and arrived in about 2 weeks to the USA. It has become one of my favorite gaiwans. I highly recommend this beautiful gaiwan because of the quality and will be a return customer.
