The plum blossom blooms in mid to late January against the bitterness of Winter. That is why ancient literati had a high regard of the flower, for its metaphoric representation of people with the strength and endurance of holding on Righteousness, even when facing violent repression by the powerful.

Symbolism aside, the gaiwan’s round belly form provides a minimal surface area to volume ratio to maximise heat retention, while fanning out at the brim to quicken cooling for easy handling and smooth decantation. This is a classic shape. The lid has a well form dome for trapping air. A lid button has a well formed hollow to keep itself cool enough for resting your finger on it when handling.

  1. This quickly became my favorite Gaiwan.

    The design is wonderful and reminds us to connect with nature. It is easy to decant due to the perfect shape of the lid.

    The only wish I would have is for a slightly smaller version of the same design, maybe around 100ml for smaller gongfu sessions.

    • Happy that you enjoy using this. There is a gaiwan of smaller capacity that we can launch later this year. Hope you will like its surface design.
