DESCRIPTION

The Zahra Porcelain Gaiwan is a beautiful brewing vessel which holds 275 ml.  Crafted in porcelain, this Gaiwan has a delicate teal-coloured floral decoration enhancing it’s appearance.

The Gaiwan

Gaiwan’s are thought to have been developed in China during the ‘Ming Dynasty’ (1368-1644 AD).  And they remain popular today for both tea masters as well as tea beginners alike.  What we love about them is how they allow you to experience your tea in a whole new way, further engaging your senses.   So, if you have never brewed with one before, behold a whole new tea experience.

As well as enjoying a tea moment to yourself, brewing tea with the Zahra porcelain Gaiwan is also a perfect way to enjoy the full sensory experience with a friend.  The time afforded to fully enjoy the experience allows for a true moment of relaxation.

HOW TO BREW TEA IN YOUR GAIWAN

This Gaiwan holds 275mls.  It is a good idea before you brew your tea, to pour hot water in the Gaiwan (and tasting cups if you are using some) and pour away.  This warms them up to avoid the tea cooling too quickly.

Brew your tea by placing your tea leaves directly in the Gaiwan.  Use 1tsp (2.5g) of leaves.  Then add the hot water at the desired temperature for your tea.  (Remember that green teas should be brewed at around 80 degrees or a couple of minutes after the kettle boils, so that you do not burn the leaves).  Try to avoid pouring the water directly onto the tea leaves and instead, try to first pour along the sides of the Gaiwan.

After this, replace the lid on the Gaiwan and allow the tea to brew. On the first steep, you brew your tea for only one minute.  As you steep your leaves again, you extend the brewing time slightly each time.  When you remove the lid, the unfurled leaves will be clear for you to observe in all their glory.  The wide opening at the top allows for an easy way to observe the leaves and how they have unfurled, which is often fascinating.  Breathe in the scent of the leaves as well.

Brewing tea with a Gaiwan allows you the time to take notice of the amazing details we often miss when brewing tea normally or in a tea bag.  Then, place the lid on the Gaiwan slightly tilted.  This will allow you to use it as a filter to hold the leaves whilst you pour some into your tasting cup.
