The successor to our wildly popular Jingdezhen Spring Gaiwan, our new Spring Gaiwan is handcrafted in Dehua, Fujian from paper-thin, high-fired porcelain. Finished with a thin, hand-painted cerulean line along the rims of the lid, body, and saucer, this elegant vessel pays modern tribute to the famed "blue and white" qinghua porcelain style of the Ming Dynasty.
The pure white porcelain provides an ideal visual background for appreciating tea, while the masterful thinness of the material offers a wonderfully precise pour. A sibling to our more rounded Summer Gaiwan, the Spring version is taller and more angular, presenting a slightly more formal silhouette. The vessel's foot nestles perfectly into the stately saucer beneath.
