The Butiki Flower Gaiwan is very attractive with a great deal of detail and multiple color accents and in it’s design.
It has a maximum capacity of 8oz. filled to the top of the out-turned lip. The maximum capacity, not including the lip, is 6oz.
This porcelain gaiwan is very sturdy with a total weight 338g: saucer 96g, bowl 165g, lid 77g. Consequently, it does a great job of retaining heat, aroma, and flavor. It’s also relatively easy to hold for my masculine hands. And with proper handling technique, one’s fingers are not burned even with the higher temperatures needed for black tea! :-)
