The gaiwan is made by a creative and accomplished team called Bian(check here for more about Bian) in Jingdezhen.
The gaiwan is made of ceramic , giving it a refined appearance. Due to the glaze used, the gaiwan stands out for the blushing appearance providing a soft touch and being aesthetically beautiful. The thin wall of the gaiwan makes it lightweight and a pleasure to hold. Despite the elaborate appearance, the ceramic is strong and practical in using without much worry of fragility.
Each gaiwan holds approximately 120ml of liquid. Pinched out slightly, the rim is extremely thin and easy to pour out the tea, and thin enough to prevent the fingers from the heat as well.
Please note that all gaiwans are individually glazed, so the appearance varies a bit from dark to light depending on the gaiwan selected at radome. The glazed interior makes all teas available for brewing in those gaiwans. We offer flower-shaped teacups and saucers together with the gaiwan if you are keen on a set, and please refer to the photos for more details.
