Lotus – the lid-sliding tea cup

“Gaibei” shows the most refined tea culture in a simple way. After pouring water into the cup, simply slide on the lid to seal in the tea fragrance. The lid-sliding is a representation of tranquility and balance, an image projected by lotuses.
LOTUS gaibei is designed to make lid-sliding simpler so that even beginning tea-drinkers can master this difficult movement by moving only the thumbs. The shape of the cup imitates the veins of the lotus leaves. The double wall porcelain cup can keep the temperature inside and users won’t feel hot while holding it.
