Dating back to the Ming Dynasty, the gaiwan is a traditional brewing vessel that literally translates to "lid and bowl". Our Classic Gaiwan is made of white glazed porcelain and consists of three parts: a saucer, bowl, and lid. The gaiwan is a preferred brewing vessel for loose teas as it allows for the appreciation of delicate aromas emanating from the fragrant leaves. 4oz (120ml). Made in China.
