      • A gaiwan combines the function of a teapot and a teacup.  
      • In Buddhism, a fully blooming lotus flower signifies enlightenment and a closed bud represents a path towards enlightenment.  
      • The lotus rising above the mud to bloom symbolizes faith in oneself to overcome hardships, and also symbolizes purity and enlightenment.
    • The gaiwan, or "small teapot", is part of the traditional Chinese gongfu tea ceremony or kung fu tea ceremony (Chinese: 工夫茶 or 功夫茶), which is a method of making Chinese tea involving the ritualized preparation and presentation of tea. The term literally means "making tea with skill".
