This new easy gaiwan design, first released in China 2-3 years ago, is extremely convenient to use, and quickly gained the favor of Chinese tea lovers and Dehua pottery studios.
It Just remove the filter from the gaiwan body when the tea is brewed. Thus, we have the convenience of traditional Zhong and a serving pitcher to share tea. In addition, the size of the filter is almost as big as the pitcher. Also almost all the hot water is in contact with the leaves for an optimal infusion. We therefore no longer have the major flaw of Zhongs where only part of the liquid is infused. We can therefore use this very practical design for a real tea infusion according to the GongFu Cha method, even for a beginner.
This sandstone travel set from Dehua and glass, black in color, includes an easy glass and wood gaiwan, a stoneware and metal filter, three cups of identical diameter with a wave pattern, and a lid. Everything is protected in a rigid transport shell.
