White Lotus Gaiwan
This elegant gaiwan is delicately crafted with the best Jingdezhen ceramic, which doesn't affect the natural flavor of the tea leaves, giving the purest brew.
The technique that inspired the creation of this piece is called Yǐng qīng 影青, literally "green shadow", and it was used in Jingdezhen city since Song dynasty (960-1279). It was characterized by extremely thin porcelain, white glazed with blue-green hues (the real meaning of the character qīng 青), and with embossed patterns.
The glaze is pure and delicate, and the ceramic is lightweight and strong, perfect for brewing any kind of tea, especially the freshest green and yellow teas.
The gaiwan can be purchased alone or with 2 White Lotus cups.

I was looking for a gaiwan to subsitute my previous green celadon broken one. The White Lotus Gaiwan is simple but perfect, nice grip and very beautiful glaze.
