BESTLEAFTEA gaiwan is considered to be particularly good for brewing teas with delicate flavors and aromas, such as Green tea, White Tea, Black tea and Puerh.
Usually all three parts are held at once with both hands. The saucer is held with the fingers of the right hand while the thumb rests on the edge of the bowl. The left hand then holds the lid, which is used to brush away the tea leaves before drinking. It can take some practice to do this, as the liquid tends to be hot.
