This glass gaiwan enables the appreciation of the hidden side of of infusing tea. Its smooth sides ensure a comfortable grip and a neutral infusion; it can accommodate all families of tea. This small, covered cup and saucer, is an instrument of choice especially for infusing teas with large leaves. The tea leaves are infused directly in the cup and the lid is used to hold back the leaves when it is time to stop the infusion. The gaiwan is very good for multiple infusions, concentrating their aromas and flavours in each cup.
