Where to get quality yet affordable Gaiwans? I've looked on some sites and have seen some nice gaiwans. I'd like to add some to my collection but I don't want to break the bank. I want something nice looking and well made though. I was wondering if it is safe to order overseas because of possible lead in enamel? Thanks in advance!
They have a cheap 100ml gaiwan for $8 plus shipping. there's a bunch on ebay as well, but the wait is pretty long if it's from china or something. If you're buying from ebay, just make sure the seller has good reputation.
Teaktrekker has well made porcelain gaiwans in 3 sizes. I have the 2 smaller sizes. They may not be the least expensive, but if you're in the US you'll receive them quickly and I think they're worth the money.
