The gaiwan holds 150ml and feels so natural being handled and poured. The gaiwan is showcased beautifully on the matching plate which centers the eye and offers a practical and visually pleasing way to prepare and present the tea. Each cup holds 50ml so the set comes with a glass pitcher.
The go-to gaiwan for steeping almost any tea. This 150ml gaiwan is crafted from Jingdezhen porcelain and is perfect for solo sessions or tea dates. The sides are not too thin, so it doesn't get too hot to handle, plus the wide rim keeps the edges cool so you won't burn your fingers. The lid fits snug and doesn't slip when pouring, making it an all-around perfect pouring experience.
Each cup holds 75ml of tea, so two cups perfectly fit the gaiwan's volume. You can always get extra cups if you like to host tea parties.
Gaiwans can be either purchased on their own, or as a set with the cups included.
