In traditional Chinese culture, the number seven represents the combination of Yin, Yang and Five Elements (Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth). This combination is considered “harmony” in Confucianism. In Chinese Taoism, it stands for Tao which has a close connection with kindness and beauty. We’ve been using this durable, functional porcelain Gaiwan in our teahouses for over 25 years because of its sturdy construction, a bright white interior that makes it easy to view the color of the liquor as the tea infusion develops, and a wide mouth that allows for great temperature control with delicate green teas. Now you can enjoy the same benefits when you brew tea at home!
