Looking to get into loose-leaf tea, but you don't know where to start? Try our Tea Starter Kit! Our simple Starter Kit Includes:
1 Gaiwan (lid, bowl, and saucer)
1 Ounce of tea
Perfect for one person! Great as a small pot to use while working, studying, reading, or relaxing! The gaiwan is the perfect vessel for almost any loose-leaf tea, and it can be used with teas not included in the kit. Also makes a great gift! (Even for yourself!)
Green Tea is an unoxidized style of tea that retains the vegetal taste of the fresh leaf. White Tea is a lightly oxidized style of tea that is left to wither in the shade or partial shade; it has a mild, soothing character. Oolong Tea is a partially oxidized style of tea; its exact processing and style can vary widely like its flavor. This oolong is a lighter, rolled variety.
What is a Gaiwan?
The Gaiwan is a traditional Chinese ceramic vessel for preparing tea. It can be used without a cup, but many people prefer to use one with a cup. The saucer can be used to hold the gaiwan while it's hot, while the lid keeps the liquid warm while loose leaves brew happily inside!
