Dehua (德化), Quanzhou, Fujian Province (one of the Top 3 famous porcelain and ceramic places)
White Porcelain (白瓷)

Gaiwan 210g / Pitcher 150g
Practical Gaiwan and Pitcher tea set in gongfu tea brewing.
The Gaiwan is used traditionally to actually brew your tea leaves in. It is also called the “sancai bowl”, which translates into the synchronicity of man, earth and the sky as the cover of the gaiwan represents the sky, the bowl itself representing humankind, and the saucer below as earth.
The tea pitcher is used to serve the tea liquid, which can homogenize the taste and concentration of tea liquid, and share to tasting cups.
The glaze of this tea pitcher is pure, shiny and smooth, which is easy for drinkers to observe the color of tea liquid. The design of the handle makes it more convenient to pour the tea liquid without being scalded by hot water, even if you are a beginner. Moreover, its characteristic of heat insulation is better than glass.
Material - Ivory White
Ivory white is a color name of porcelain glaze, which has earned the name for its ivory-like texture. The glaze contains the oxide of Titanium, so it looks slight yellowish white, but with shiny bright appearance. Under the sunlight, we can see pink or milky looming inside the glaze. Thus, it is also called lard white (猪油白), or ivory white. In Europe, this kind of glazing color is also called velvet white or Chinese white.
Located in Fujian province, Dehua County is the famous porcelain and ceramic origin and an important base for exporting porcelain in China. With over thousand-year history, Dehua porcelain is characterized by its elegant design, excellent craft, hard texture and watery white appearance.
