Gongfu Style Brewing Method
Introductory Ceramic Gaiwan
A gaiwan is a three-piece set that is the among the most traditional tea brewing implements of the world. Its beauty is its simplicity. Each gaiwan comes with a cup, a saucer, and a lid. Gaiwans are ideal for gongfu brewing, as their wide rim provides excellent views of the stories of the leaves. This particular gaiwan is a great introductory piece because it is small enough for solo tea sessions, but big enough to share tea with friends. Using the same piece for big and small parties will teach you how to work with tea, and help you develop your tea brewing skills.
