The image displays a classic white porcelain Gaiwan, an essential vessel in Chinese Gongfu Chadao, which is the art of tea-making. This Gaiwan has a practical capacity of between 70-100ml, suitable for the meticulous brewing and enjoyment of fine teas.
A Gaiwan, composed of a saucer, bowl, and lid, is admired for its versatility and simplicity. This particular Gaiwan's pure white color highlights the tea's color and clarity, enhancing the sensory appreciation of the brew. The beauty of this Gaiwan lies in its clean lines and elegant form, which is both aesthetically pleasing and easy to handle during the multiple short infusions characteristic of Gongfu tea sessions.
Porcelain is an excellent material for a Gaiwan as it is non-porous, does not absorb flavors, and is easy to clean, ensuring the pure taste of the tea. The Gaiwan's design allows the drinker to sniff the aroma from the lid, sip the tea from the edge of the bowl, and admire the leaves as they unfurl in the bowl. This particular piece would be a cherished tool for both beginners and seasoned practitioners of Gongfu Chadao.

A great beginner gaiwan. Best of all, it’s been packaged extremely well! My place is known for horrible package handling but to those similar to me worry not! Not even a hairline crack on my wares!
