Simple beauty of ancient lineage from the Ming Dynasty. The Gaiwan or lidded bowl is a versatile tea vessel for Tea Lovers, Chefs, Tearistas and Mixologists. An elegant and petite ritual that infuses potentized aroma, taste and sensory appreciation to the way of Slow Tea. Multiple concentrated short infusions lure the beautiful premium taste of your fine loose leaf Teas. Neophites can learn quickly and seasoned Tea Masters love to infuse themselves in the moment as most famously quoted :

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh

Slow down, unplug, reconnect with yourself in this moment or with a loved one over a cup of fine loose leaf Tea slowly steeped. White Porcelain  Gaiwans are now available online in limited supply.
