Metal strainers rust, fancy tea bags run out, but this gaiwan never stops delivering an amazing tea experience. It is perfect for one or two people and I'm finally enjoying my Eco-cha teas the right way. A real no-brainer and I wish I had ordered it years ago.
I bought this to replace my previous gaiwan, and I adore it. It's the perfect size for one, pours beautifully, easy to clean, and never burns my fingers, even when I do multiple successive steepings. I wasn't sure about white just for my personal aesthetic, but tea nerd that I am, I really enjoy being able to clearly see the leaves and the color of the tea as it steeps. Highly recommend!
