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 Ice Crack 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 Ice Crack 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.

I believe that I will like it more and more.
This is a small Gaiwan. This is my second Gaiwan. I like this special ice-crackle glaze. The ice-crackle glaze looks very nice.The color is a bit darker than I expected, but still attractive. I bought a portion of Jasmine Dragon Green Tea. I brewed it in the Gaiwan and it tastes very good. This is really good. I believe that I will like it more and more.

Longquan Celadon Gaiwan
I absolutely love celadonware, So i bought a Gaiwan for Christmas. Overall, I really like it. All the pieces fit together really well. Functions wonderfully. And looks great. The rim is a little thick so after a couple steeps the rim will get hot.It's not perfect but it makes tea and I'm happy with it.

Lovely
Large, heavy, well made and gorgeous gaiwan. One of the best I've had so far. Not even that expensive. Pours well and doesn't get hot on the fingers. Shipped reasonably fast and securely packaged. Would recommend one any day!

Delicate and sturdy! Gorgeous little gaiwan.
Gorgeous celadon gaiwan! This is slightly on the smaller side compared to other gaiwans I've seen in other markets. But this is great for serving up to two people per steeping. (I'm on my own, so this is perfect for me.) Delicate and sturdy. I would definitely buy from this seller again!
