Gaiwan hammered glass red 125ml

Beautiful hammered glass Gaiwan, great to view the colour of the tea while steeping.

Gaiwan is also known as Zhong or San Cai Wan. It consists of a bowl, a lid, and a saucer.

It is commonly used to infuse tea as if it were a teapot. Its design allows easy observation of tea while steeping. It’s an indispensable tea tasting tool for many tea lovers.

Using Gaiwan as a teacup was once popular during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and some still drink from it today. Tea leaves are infused directly in the Gaiwan and the lid holds them back when drinking.
