This is one of the coolest and most compact travel tea set we have ever seen! The very user-friendly and attractive gaiwan style teapot has a 140ml capacity, which offers the option of brewing for one, two or three people.
The inset lid makes it much easier to use than a classic gaiwan, but just as easy to clean. And the upper lip surrounding the lid allows for an easy grip that is cooler to the touch. The teapot and cups are made from a nice, dense ceramic that offers a quality feel. The inside of the teapot has the same glaze as the outside, but the inside of the upper lip is unglazed, as is the underside of the lid. This allows for a more secure, non-slip fit of the lid on the teapot. And it also has a nice aesthetic feel to the unglazed clay in placing the lid on the teapot. Overall it's a very smart design!
There is one larger and two smaller cups, offering convenient flexibility for 1 to 3 people. The two smaller cups fit snugly inside the teapot, lined with the accessory cloth. The cloth then lines the lid, as well as the larger cup that fits over the lid to form a capsule shape. This then fits perfectly into the custom made, durable travel case that zips up in one easy swipe, and is ready to be tossed into your daypack or luggage!
