Thin 70ml porcelain gaiwan

$35.00

The 70ml version of our popular thin porcelain gaiwan. This is an exceptionally thin-walled white porcelain gaiwan handmade in Jingdezhen. The capacity when filled to the lid position is 70ml. Thin gaiwans are particularly versatile, because they cool down more rapidly in the wait time between one infusion and another. This is particularly important for young sheng and greener oolongs. Using thicker vessels for these teas could lead to stronger spinach/grassy flavors. Handmade gaiwans have a slight asymmetry that reduces the suction between the lid and body when the gaiwan is filled. Gaiwans are a simple tool, but it is difficult to find one in which every detail is right.
