Behold the "Jing Xin" Gaiwan, a vessel of serenity, inviting a tranquil tea experience with its harmonious form and function. With a generous 170ml capacity, this porcelain Gaiwan stands at an ideal size of 9.5cm in both diameter and height, crafted for the perfect grip and balance.
The Gaiwan, or "San Gai Wan," meaning "three-part cup," includes a lid and body, often accompanied by a saucer. This particular piece boasts an elegant symmetry, its pure white surface adorned with calligraphy that reads "Jing Xin," translating to "Peaceful Mind," a sentiment that echoes with each steeping.
Admire the soothing blue accents that outline this Gaiwan, lending it a delicate beauty that complements its practicality. The artistry of the piece is not only in its appearance but also in its design, facilitating a seamless tea-steeping process.
To use, simply introduce 4-8 grams of your chosen tea leaves into the Gaiwan's body. Pour water heated to the optimal temperature—85-92 degrees Celsius for green or black tea—over the leaves. Cover with the lid and let the tea steep, the first infusion being a rinse to awaken the leaves. Repeat the process, extending the steeping time as your taste dictates, and indulge in the evolving flavors of the tea.
This "Jing Xin" Gaiwan is not just a tea tool; it's a tribute to the Gongfu tea ceremony's meditative quality, making it an exquisite gift for tea aficionados or a prized addition to your tea ware collection. Embrace the essence of Gongfu Chadao with each pour, and let the "Peaceful Mind" Gaiwan be a vessel that delivers more than just tea—a brew steeped in tradition and mindfulness.
