    I use this houhin to make Gyokuro. It works very well for that. The two cups differing in volume (~60 ml/40ml) makes them stackable and is a nice touch. When drinking alone I prefer to use one yuzamashi worth of water (~100ml) and a larger cup. Overall I'd recommend this set to anyone interested in trying Gyokuro.

    Another great tea set from O-cha. I will alternate between this and my shiboradash tea set, when drinking Gyokuro. Plus they both look attractive in my display case. Thanks O-cha for two wonderful and fully functional tea sets.

    This is a pretty nice and very different teapot from the kyusu pots that I'm used to. Easy to brew in and easy to pour from. It doesn't even really need the lid for this pot since there's a lip around the top that keeps water from pouring out the top. I like the colors, both inside and outside the pot and cups.

    A really nice set that I mainly use for Gyokuro.  Space in my kitchen is a bit limited so the nesting feature is a big plus.  The odd sized cups do make   serving a slight challenge but it always makes for a nice topic of conversation.  My favorite feature is the exterior texture.  It is slightly rough, almost like a fine grit  sandpaper but in a very pleasant way.  I love how it feels in the hand.

    That's a really nice, attractively priced set. It's very cute and practical that you can stow everything in the pot. The different-size cups are strange at first, but have their own aesthetic, almost wabi-sabi, making you concentrate on the pour if you want equal portions, or a way to show appreciation by offering the larger one (or ask someone else to do the tea so you get it, heheh).
