The classic Gaiwan. The bowl, lid and saucer are ceramic and ideal for every day use.
Gaiwan are traditionally used for the preparation and enjoyment of Oolong and also Green, White and Yellow Tea.
Heat the empty Gaiwan and then add your leaves. Give it a little shake and marvel that the aroma is instantly released. Steep the leaves for 1-2 minutes and repeat several times.
If you wish to prepare the tea Gongfu-style, fill the Gaiwan with tea and steep the leaves for 10-20 seconds. For each additional infusion increase the steeping time by a further 10-20 seconds. Gongfu will provide you with many infusions (with Oolongs often as many as 10!)
