Description: A gaiwan is a Chinese lidded bowl used for the infusion of tea leaves and the consumption of tea. It was invented during the Ming dynasty.
This gaiwan is made from stone in china. It is a beautifully designed and hand-crafted vessel that is perfectly balanced for ease of handling to brew and to serve tea. Tea connoisseurs often brew the tea right in the gaiwan although it may also be used conventionally as a tea cup, the lid serving the function of keeping the tea warm. Its inbuilt filter separates leaves and liquor very easily.
