Porcelain Tea Bowl with Lid and Saucer
75 ml / 2.5 oz capacity
This is a tiny tea bowl usually for pu-er tea though nowadays people use it to steep oolong, white and even green tea. It is best for steeping tea that requires only 10~15 seconds, using multiple steepings. The functional difference between the gaiwan and a teapot is that straining is faster in the gaiwan. Some people like to use the gaiwan as a strainer.
