Made up of a small cup, saucer and lid, the Gaiwan is ancient style of infusion that was introduced in China during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). This style of infusion allows the tea leaves to be infused in a small amount of water in order to concentrate the flavors and aromas. The lid holds back the tea leaves, allowing for multiple infusions while also enabling the drinker to inhale the aromas of the infused leaves. Typically used for large leaf tea such as oolong or pu er.
