Traditional Chinese gaiwan (盖碗) tea bowl with lid and saucer. A gaiwan is used for the infusion of tea leaves. The gaiwan is suitable for any type of tea, although the it is mainly used for brewing tea with delicate flavors and aromas, such as green tea, white tea, oolong tea.

You can use the gaiwan to make the tea and pour it out to another cup or to drink it straight away from the gaiwan. For tea ceremonies, the tea is often prepared in a gaiwan and then poured out in small bowls. Traditionally, the gaiwan was used for immediate drinking, using the lid to hold back the leaves. 

What kind of teas are suitable to drink in a Gaiwan?
Using a Gaiwan is the recommended method for brewing green and white tea. That's because the gaiwan's porcelain absorbs the heat and does not damage the tea leaves. Gaiwans are less suitable for black tea, because the large lid allows the heat to escape too quickly during soaking. They are commonly used in northern China to enjoy scented teas such as jasmine tea.

How should you use a Gaiwan?
Usually all three parts are held with both hands at the same time. The saucer is held with the fingers of the right hand while the thumb rests on the rim of the bowl. The left hand then holds the lid, which is used to wipe away the tea leaves before drinking them. It may take some practice to do this as the contents are hot.

Sinds een tijdje bestel ik thee bij Earl Orange! De service top! Maar nog belangrijker: het is heerlijk! Ze hebben heel veel keus, ik drink nu tijdens het werk altijd de Relax & Concentratie thee, deze is erg lekker. Ook hebben ze echt toffe accessoires waardoor thee drinken nog leuker wordt!

Ik ontvang al 2 maanden de suprise box met heerlijke smaken thee! Veel variatie, mooie verpakking en snelle bezorging! Earl orange heeft losse thee waardoor je zelf makkelijk de sterkte van de thee kan bepalen en het is veel milieuvriendelijker dan zakjes.

Super service, they answer all your questions quickly and friendly. They helped us making our chose and then after a only a couple of days our order already arrived (in Belgium). Nice and firm box, sturdy packaging. We very much recommend! A selection of their tea makes the perfect end-of-year gift or for any other occasion really.

Ik kreeg een Warm Hug theepakket door mijn brievenbus en dacht 'Huh?!'. Maar bleek een ontzettend leuk kaartje in te zitten. Leuk cadeautje van een vriendin van mij. Ik kende Earl Orange nog niet, maar erg lekkere thee! En leuke website. Bedankt!! :-)
