Using a gaiwan to brew and drink tea offers a unique experience that you can’t get from other types of teaware. As a matter of fact, ever since it was introduced in the Ming dynasty, it hasn’t changed at all. A modern gaiwan faithfully follows the traditional lidded tea bowl style, but with a more up-to-date design.
Take for instance this Flower Blossom Gaiwan with Six Teacups. The gaiwan still comes with the teal bowl, lid, and saucer. The exterior features a white finish and a hand-painted flower and leaves illustration. This makes the teaware exceptionally beautiful and unique. The same design is applied for the teacups, pitcher, and filter. This gaiwan tea set includes six teacups, one gaiwan cup with lid and saucer, one pitcher, and one filter. All of which are made from glossy porcelain material.
