Gaiwan - Moonflower
The most careful observers will notice how this gaiwan changes according to the light it touches: just like moonflowers, which inspire the shape of its tray. With the daylight it will offer a variety of golden hues; at night, it will reveal its darkest side, acquiring a silver glaze, which will turn into green with the first morning light.
It is made of porcelain and consists of three pieces, traditionally classified as follows: the lid symbolizes the sky, the tray represents the earth, and the cup, that stays between the two, is the human being in the nature.
This gaiwan assures a proper brew preparation, due to a perfect manufacturing and material choice that doesn’t affect the tea leaves natural flavor.

Very nice instrument to appreciate excellent teas.
It is an heavier gaiwan with solid body for bigger hands. Fine set up of the lid enables precise pouring. I hope it will be perfect for brewing of raw or shu puer.
I really enjoy brewing with the moonflower gaiwan, not only is it very beautiful and elegant but it just has a really nice poor. The porcelain is smooth, not too thick, not too thin and you can use it for any kind of tea. Very happy with my new gaiwan!
Very comfortable to hold, this beautiful gaiwan features an amazing shiny glaze, with jade-reminiscent green reflexes. The size is perfect, and the rim doesn't get too hot over multiple consecutive brewings, allowing a safe handling.
