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.

    • Design: This tea caddy is a real eye-catcher, which arouses the curiosity of a guest and invites him to enjoy tea together. The tea caddy is 3.7 inches (9.5 cm) in diameter, 8 inches (20 cm) in total height including the lid. A practical volume of 34 fl oz (1 L) is well suited for 0.5 lbs (250 g) to 2.2 lbs (1 kg) loose leaf tea, depending on the volume of the tea leaves and other ingredients. The empty weight of the tea tin is 1.4 lbs (650 g).
    • Light Protection: The dark glass provides enough light protection so that the beautiful glass tea caddy is predestinated to decorate your tea corner instead of being hidden in a dark cupboard. With its reflective black glass surface and silver lettering, the tea caddy adapts to any environment by reflecting its surroundings.
    • Protection Of Flavours: The screw lid closes the tea caddy airtight. Using a special inlay, the screw lid ensures that the tea remains flavourful and fresh for much longer. There is no need for an additional which is usual with tin tea caddies.
    • Safety And Purity: The empty glass tea caddy is delivered sealed. When you get your package, you may simply open the caddy and fill the tea immediately, without rinsing and drying it beforehand. The glass tea caddy has neither seams nor bent edges of a regular tin caddy where tea leaves and dust may accumulate. The glass canister without the lid is dishwasher safe. The chemical resistance of the glass tea caddy has been certified according to ISO 719:1985.
    • Labeling: The empty tea caddy is labeled with a beautiful silver colour. A detachable label is available separately so that you can cover the tea name after changing the contents. The tea caddy can be personalised as a gift in a separate offer. But also this tea caddy in combination with the separately available tea is perfect as a gift for a tea lover.

    • Design: Developed in Germany. Taking advantage of golden ratio the timeless minimal design flatters the eye. The thick walls make the glass heavy, durable and still highly transparent. An absence of thick bottom reduces light refractions. You get such a clear vision of your beverage that your enjoyment starts even before you taste it.
    • Comfort: At the edge the walls are even thicker and rounded, making it very comfortable for the lips. You have probably not experienced such drinking comfort from a transparent vessel.
    • Convenience: The useable volume of the highball drinking glasses is 12 fl oz, 330 ml, 0.33 Liter. The glass is thermal shock resistant and dishwasher safe, the glass looks like new after each washing cycle. The golden ratio proportions and weight distribution prevents the glass from overturning.
    • Durable: This highball tumbler made of borosilicate can withstand a thermal shock. In other words, you can put cold water with ice cubes without cooling down right after heat drying in the dishwasher or take it from the shelf pour boiling water into the glass without warming up.
    • Premium: Due to the unusually thick wall for borosilicate glass, these glasses look and feel exceptionally high-quality. Each glass is handmade and therefore unique.

    Caffeine is not for everyone. While small amounts are quite beneficial to health, too much caffeine can lead to circulatory problems and insomnia. There are also people who cannot tolerate caffeine at all or should avoid it for medical reasons, such as pregnancy.

    We have a decaffeinated Earl Grey in our assortment for all those who want to experience the full taste of a good tea without the stimulating effect. The black tea from Ceylon is freed from caffeine in a gentle carbon dioxide steam process without losing its characteristic taste. Our special Earl Grey flavor blend, consisting of at least 90% bergamot oil and subtle notes of tangerine and lemon, gives you the full, unadulterated Earl Grey experience.

    Ideal to introduce even the youngest to this delicious tea variety.

    Ingredients: black tea from Ceylon, flavor.
