This gets more use than any of my other gaiwans thanks to the very small amount of tea required to fill it – I usually use around 3.5 grams. I usually drink tea before I leave for work at 8am, so unless I want to get up very early, I can’t stretch a session out for hours. As such, to get the maximum number of steeps out of my tea, I need to use a small brewing vessel.

I gave this a 100 rating, but it isn’t perfect for every tea. No vessel is! This one’s ideally suited to most teas that require under-boiling temperatures, but it struggles to retain enough heat for hei cha or sheng. Even some oolongs taste a little watery brewed in here. I’ve also found a few teas with leaves long enough to stick out the sides of this before they grow limp in the hot water. However, solving either of these ‘problems’ would require compromising this gaiwan’s qualities (by making it retain too much heat for delicate teas, and by increasing its volume), so I don’t consider them real issues with the vessel.

I still use this gaiwan frequently a few years later. I mainly use it when I want a small amount of a good hongcha and for green high mountain oolong. Sometime greens and whites find their way into it but never puerh.

I’m gonna go ahead and throw a 100 on this, too. In addition to Girl Meets Gaiwan’s review, I’d like to add a little more. The saucer is a thicker porcelain than the gaiwan, with six stylistic indentations around the edge and has a divot that keeps the gaiwan in place. The underside of the lid rim is lightly textured, I suppose to keep the lid in place. The porcelain is thin and allows some light to move through, but it’s not so thin that I burn my fingers when using high temperature water. I consider this a very worthwhile purchase.

I had it sitting in my cart for a long time until I read this. I ordered it. Thank you :) for the review. I’m always looking for a good gaiwan. The smallest one I have is 100ml so this is going to be great.

You’re welcome. Hope you enjoy it!

I should’ve added before that it’s actually eggshell color not pure white.

Omgosh Derk I got it today and I love it. It’s almost 10 pm and it is absolutely perfect for those late nights, 3g half servings instead of 6g. I’ve been taking it in and out of my cart for months lol. Thank you <3

It is a nice small brewing vessel to have on hand, especially for the price. May you have many pleasant sessions with it :)

I love this gaiwan. First off, it’s adorable. Second, it is perfect for solo gongfu sessions. The amount of time and volume of water consumed by a session with my larger 100-120ml gaiwans meant that I rarely had opportunity to sit down and enjoy it. This size is great – I can fully steep out a tea without staying up all night.

I received this gaiwan earlier this week with my order and have already used it a few times. I agree! It seems well made and is very affordable.

It also is very easy to manipulate for myself of petite hand.
