Really happy with this product
Monday, 14 August 2017  |  Francesco

I love this mini tea set. The cup and bowl are pretty small; I'd say they can contain around 100 ml of water which is, in my opinion, the perfect quantity for a good cup of green tea. I take it with me wherever I go as it's pretty easy to carry. I was very fond of the infuser glass cup but since I bought this item I must admit that I changed my mind and that I now prefer porcelain to glass.

Tea tasting set
Thursday, 25 August 2016  |  Davide

This is a perfect tea tasting set, up to standard criteria.
The standard way of tasting tea is to put 2 grams of the preferred tea inside the "pot" and use the adequately warmed water (-about 100 mL) inside it.
It's different from a zhong/gaiwan (where you should let the tea infuse from 20 seconds to a minute). For a tasting session the tea should be infused for the normal amount of time, the amount of time you'd use for a teapot. I tried drinking 2 or 3 teas this way. The tasting experience comes off with a strong intense flavor, since the ratio tea-water is extreme, but it's still to be used like a normal pot. I wouldn't recommend the tasting itself to people who aren't a bit accustomed to drinking tea.
It's also really convenient since you can just use it like a gaiwan (making a friendlier tipe of tea). For that I suggest letting the tea sip for about 30-60 seconds (usually) and using from 1 to 2 grams (more if you like strong flavors, you should get your idea after some brews) for 100 ml.
The height of the pot is a bit less than the diameter of the bowl: for using it (and not spilling the tea) you should put the pot perpendicular to the bowl and it will wedge in.
The first tea I tried drinking was (in the way of tasting) a shincha, a japanese green tea I really liked. Honyama nagatsumata, a very classical japanese green tea I'd say. The bitterness was stronger, as expected, but the herbal notes weren't lost either.
This is an article I suggest buying to anyone who is really interested in the culture of tea (since I think trying a tasting session would be an important experience) and people who want their teas with the maximum they can give and have the patience of brewing more than a cup.
I'm in no way an expert so anyone is welcome to correct any mistakes I might have made.
