Gaiwan | Ying Tao
This small cup comes with a lid and saucer and is used especially for infusing large leaf teas.
The leaves are infused directly and the lid holds them back when the tea is ready to pour. This allows the leaves to be saved for multiple infusions, thus concentrating the flavours and aromas for each cup.
Diameter: 8 cm
Height: 8.5 cm

Made of porcelain, the pure white glazed interior finish is perfect to enhance the colour of the liquor of either an entire gaiwan infuson or a shared teapot. An elegant everyday accessory with its pleasing curves and practical size.
