The term "Gaiwan" is translated from the Chinese words "lidded bowl" and it's made for tea brewing.
A good gaiwan can make just about any tea. From Chinese green tea to Taiwanese oolongs to vintage pu-erh, all full leaf teas (except for matcha) can be steeped in the gaiwan for multiple infusions.
This basic gaiwan is made of porcelain and has a nicely curved lip that makes handling easier for beginners and people with smaller hands. We use it daily in our tea room and did we mention it's dishwasher safe?
