|Tea Infuser from Fengcun Tea Market
Gift Pack #2
This ornate glass tea infuser-pitcher and two double-walled glass tea cups were sourced from Fengcun tea market in Guangzhou, where Li-yan worked after she graduated from her pu-erh training program. This beautiful and very functional tea accessory is about the size of a gaiwan. The outer glass cup serves as a pitcher, holding the ceramic infuser. A matching lid sits on top of the pitcher and can also double as a stand for the infuser.
Brewing is simple and elegant with this device. The strength of the tea can easily be seen in the glass pitcher as well as the two glass cups. The double-wall on these delicate cups insulates your fingers from the hot tea.
This infuser and cup set comes with four 4-gram pu-erh samples: Little Bing Dao, Red Sunset, Simply Classic, Bana Ltd Edition.
Gift Pack #2 $40 (Tea infuser, 2 glass cups and 4 teas)

|Tea Master Sun's Gaiwan Set
Gift Pack #3
Tea Master Sun, Li-yan’s tea instructor, brewed tea using a gaiwan, a three-piece slightly oversize teacup with a lid and saucer. With this type of brewing method, Tea Master Sun explains, “I can brew these particular leaves up to fifteen time. With each new infusion, the taste will change, coming from different parts of the leaf and invigorating different parts of the tongue.”
This gaiwan set is comprised of an elegant three-piece gaiwan and two matching cups. This classically styled set is hand-made of high quality porcelain in Jingdezhen, China, which is often referred to as the "Porcelain Capital of the World.” The glaze which is almost white with a whisper of cerulean blue, is baked twice at a very high temperature. It is entirely food safe with absolutely no traces of lead.
The set comes with two 4-gram pu-erh samples: Award winning Treasures from Five Mountains and Lotus Scent Aged Pu-erh
Gift Pack #3 $60 (Gaiwan with 2 cups and 2 teas)
Gift Pack #3 and Hardcover Book $85
