Loose Tea From All Over the World, Made and Packed in Hamburg - Welcome to GAIWAN

GAIWAN Tea Factory offers more than 300 loose leaf teas, most of them in organic quality (DE-ÖKO-005) and a selection of handmade glass products for tea preparation and enjoyment.

Our teas are carefully packed in Hamburg, the tea capital of Europe. As far as possible, the teas are produced at the place of origin and further processed in Hamburg. We only use the best ingredients for our teas, which we carefully select.

Do you have any questions about the ingredients or preparation? The preparation instructions, number of teaspoons per litre, water temperature and infusion time are printed on the front of the packaging. For tea preparation we recommend soft filtered water or spring water. The ingredients and the origin of the tea leaves are indicated on the back of the packaging. We will be happy to answer any further questions or suggestions you may have and will be happy to get in touch with you.

If you are satisfied with our tea, please feel free to pass it on. If you are dissatisfied, please feel free to contact us and help us to improve our products and services. We want you to be satisfied and give our best for it.

Gaiwan is, by the way, a cup with a lid in which tea was made thousands of years ago, long before the invention of today's popular teapot.
