What is it about us Teaheads? The more that we love tea, the smaller our teaware becomes. We showed these cute little babies when sampling tea in a video and received a torrent of requests for them and so here they are for you!
These Gaiwans are perfect for a small solo brew because they allow you to get a rich brew with a large leaf-to-water-ratio without using many leaves! A great solution for those precious teas that you would like to brew Gong Fu style.
We like to use them for tea sampling or horizontal tastings. If we want to sample three or more teas together in a comparative tasting, we don't want to waste leaves or drink litres and litres of tea. So we whip out a few of these Gaiwans so that we can use fewer leaves and drink a respectable (rather than obscene) amount of tea while tasting the tea brewed with the right ratios.
I highly recommend purchasing a few of these if you plan on using these to compare and drink multiple teas in one session.
