In Chinese, gaiwan means "covered bowl," a cleverly literal translation for this classic teaware. This gaiwan is great for leisurely steeping many styles of artisan tea. The delicate aromas of the tea are especially enhanced because fine porcelain does not alter the flavor of the tea. Holds approximately 5 oz.
