How to Use a Gaiwan

I confess: I’ve never used a gaiwan.

But this excellent video by MarshalN explains the basic technique of brewing tea with a gaiwan, without delving into overly complicated ideas. If, like me, you’re new to gaiwans, this video should give you the crash course you’re looking for.

    Awesome, I was looking for gaiwan related stuff after buying one this morning! Can’t wait to try it out, thanks for posting this!

    BTW, I got mine for $2.59 USD in LA Chinatown, enamel inside and clay exterior, about 4oz capacity.
