Fun Fact: Gaiwan, which means "lidded bowl," is often used for Gongfu tea preparation (Chinese Tea Ceremony 工夫茶 or 功夫茶). This tea preparation method involves "making tea mindfully and with skill." In Buddhism, a fully blooming lotus flower signifies enlightenment, and a closed bud represents a path towards enlightenment.
