We love using this easy brewing system in compact spaces or for tea while we are busy. A modern version of the "easy gaiwan," this brewing is made of a tempered glass pitcher with a rubber base to protect the glass from chipping, a loose bamboo wrap to insulate the heat and protect your hands, and a ceramic brew basket with easy-to-clean stainless steel mesh. Simply add leaves to the basket, steep and remove. The finished tea can be poured from the brew pitcher into your favorite cups. The lid of the basket doubles as a saucer so that you don’t need to worry about dripping on a desk or table.
