The purple clay material of this gaiwan is extremely well made and is doubly absorbent: first, the thick, heat-absorbent earthenware material prevents your fingers from getting burned. Second, as you use this gaiwan, you'll find your tea seasons the very clay cup itself, infusing your favorite tea's flavor into the material. As you use this gaiwan more, you'll notice that your tea will taste smoother and bolder over time. But don't wash this gaiwan with soap––you don't want the clay to absorb the flavor of your detergent, do you? Also, we recommend you not use this gaiwan for brewing herbal blends or flavored teas.
