Gaiwans are traditional Chinese tea brewing vessels.  Rising in popularity in the Ming (1326-1641 A.D.) dynasty, they continue to be used by Chinese tea connoisseurs to achieve the optimal brew.  With ample room for tea leaves to unfurl and release their flavor while concentrating all the heat and taste in a compact space, gaiwans are the ideal way to showcase your great teas and bring out their full potential.

Crystalline Glaze is an elegant finishing that uses a special technique of glazing zinc oxide before firing to produce an unique effect on the surface of porcelain.
