Enamel Porcelain Pink Lotus Gaiwan

Availability: In stock

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 Enamel Porcelain Pink Lotus 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 Enamel Porcelain Pink Lotus 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.

Gorgeous Gaiwan
Very good quality. But a little expensive. I love my cup would love to have more in different patterns. I’m so glad to have learned about gaiwans. They are truly practical and functional for brewing loose leaf teas. Just follow the brewing and pouring instructions and you are good to go. Cleaning these is a breeze. No more fine mesh tea filters for me.

The 150ml is the perfect size for a single cup of tea. The shape and thickness of this gaiwan make it easy to use without spilling or burning your fingers. The white interior let’s you see the color of the liquid to gage when to stop steeping. Item came well packaged and intact. I plan to get more.
