This eye-catching pale celadon gaiwan is a lovely way to prepare your tea. Consisting of a cup, saucer, and lid, a gaiwan is a small tea brewing vessel traditionally used in China. Similar to a teapot, you can infuse your tea leaves directly in the gaiwan before decanting your brewed tea to a smaller cup or cups.
Gaiwans are thought to be especially well-suited to brewing delicate green and white teas, but can be used with any type of tea. They’re also a good choice when preparing tea according to the Chinese gongfu cha brewing method. This gaiwan measures 4" in diameter by 3 1/4" tall with the lid on and holds 4 oz.
