Gaiwans are used to brew and serve tea in the traditional style of the Chinese Gongfu Tea Ceremony. This medium size gaiwan is made of fine porcelain from the famous Jingdezhen in China. The twin fish design symbolizes prosperity and auspiciousness. Tea connoisseurs often brew tea right in the gaiwan although it may also be used conventionally as a tea cup, the lid serving the dual function of keeping the tea warm and to block the tea leaves from pouring out.
