A gaiwan literally translates to “Lid Bowl” and is the most versatile piece of teaware you can own. It features commonly in Gong Fu Cha tea ceremonies and can be used as both a teapot or as a teacup.
This is a highly desirable item for any tea enthusiast and offers a practical and economical vessel to experiment with tea brewing methods as both western and Gong Fu Cha style brewing is possible.
The gaiwan will require a little practice for those used to a handled brewing vessel. Once mastered it offers a flexible, simple and quick brewing method and is perfect for venturing into some of the more exotic tea families.
