We opened the original Imperial Tea Court in July 1993 - just twenty years ago - with a vision of the exceptional teas and teaware that would create the experience we wanted for our customers at the "Court". We dedicated three years to developing and producing a set of Imperial Gaiwans based on Qing Dynasty patterns from the Royal Court. These were very popular with our tearoom customers but, unfortunately, became difficult to produce. Roy recently worked out a deal with one of his trusted friends in Taiwan to reproduce the original six Imperial Pattern Gaiwans with fine bone China. All of the designs were color and shapes were adjusted from the original, royal designs to fit the Gaiwan for which they were destined. The re-production is now in our stores and we are honored to show them off to you again!

5 of 5 Outstanding February 23, 2016
Reviewer: Danica Radovanov from Los Angeles, CA United States  
These gaiwans are exquisite. I used to come to the Imperial Tea Court to take lessons on green tea brewing and we would use the prototype for these. Roy would talk about one day making them properly with bone china and to his specifications. They have exceeded my expectations. The color work is beautiful and each one is like a piece of jewelry for the tea table. They are not too large, perfect for brewing for one or two people. Outstanding.
