Handpainted Jade Porcelain Gaiwan.
“Jade Porcelain”, translated from the Chinese name “yu zhi ci”, literally reads “jade mutton-fat porcelain”. It is featured by the soft-white texture and luster thanks to the key raw material, the “yu zhi” clay, originated in Dehua, a well-known porcelain city in southern Fujian.
We can enjoy tea in many ways with a Gaiwan: smelling, eye-viewing, and tasting. When you get a Gaiwan of fine tea, slowly take up the cover and smell the inner side of the lid – nice fragrance! Then have a good look at the tea – clear, bright, and tender tea buds showing high-quality tea features.
A fine Gaiwan can be handmade in glass or in porcelain. The little Jade Porcelain Gaiwan presented here is good not only for displaying the beautiful form and color of tea but holding the temperature of tea a long time as well.
