Origin: Jing De Zhen, China
Craftsmanship technique: hand painted
A perfect every occasion and everyday Gaiwan to go into your Gong Fu Cha collection, or better yet, your very first one! It has a smooth beautiful white glaze with a golden rim and fun chicks painted by hand both on the lid and on the bowl of the Gaiwan. This teaware is from the motherland of ceramics and pottery in China, Jing De Zhen.
This classic gaiwan benefits not only from the heat retention and luminous beauty of the clay but also the comfortable grip between the lid and the bowl due to the matte surface. Its function is noticeably superior to most glazed Gaiwans, producing a smooth, clean pour. While this Gaiwan is suitable for any tea and does not need to be dedicated, it has become our clay of choice for many low-oxidation Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong tea, and Taiwanese oolongs. The soft texture and excellent insulation of the clay make this Gaiwan a joy to hold and to use.
