I love the small size as well. However, I do have one complaint that I think is worth mentioning, especially seeing as this gaiwan costs $18.
My gaiwan (not sure about anyone else's) doesn't fit on the saucer exactly right. The "foot" part at the bottom of the cup is not quite long enough to reach the bottom of the saucer, therefore it kind of swivels around when sitting, which can be quite annoying. Not a big deal, but slightly disappointing when you consider the cost and how great of a gaiwan it is besides this small flaw. I still use it quite a bit anyway, but usually without the saucer.
Here are some [bad] pics for reference. Let me know if your gaiwan is like this, and if it bothers you.
This is the "foot" that I'm talking about.
In "tilt" mode.
