The Crane | Handmade Tea Set
This wonderful handmade set of Gaiwan, server and six cups comes with a beautiful crane pattern. Painted in famous blue and white "Qinghua" style, it resembles a crane rapidly going up to the clouds.

To avoid burning your fingers when steeping tea, always choose handmade porcelain teaware, and make sure it is well designed. A Gaiwan is considered the best tea ware for steeping wonderful tea. Although "Gaiwan" is a combination of two words, the "Gai" 盖 (Cover) and "Wan" 碗 (Bowl), it often comes with a collet. When all these three parts of the Gaiwan are in perfect harmony, they symbolize the unity of nature and humankind.
All too often Gaiwans are designed to simply look good, but that won’t help you when you drink tea every day. When you buy tea ware through The Porcelain Company, you can be assured the design has been tested and approved for its usability and quality.
