I got two of these for my birthday this year, but so far find I only use this tea set occasionally. I use one glass to hold the stainless strainer and prepare subsequent brews and use the other for serving, so rotate between each. I use this tea set when I am making specialty teas and I’m only going to drink a 4-10 ounce tea followed by a 2nd,3rd,4th brew. The double-walled glass stays a manageable temperature to the touch, the lazer cut stainless steel filter is perfect for fine leaves as well as larger ones, the easy lift extension on the strainer is great for grabbing, and the lid functions as a cover and or saucer. A nicely designed tea set, well constructed and the fact that it has no plastic or rubber parts is a major plus. Very light and nice to handle as well.

Preparation

Bio

I am an Architect, Planner, Educator by profession… 

My immersion into the rich world of tea began with brewing Kombucha which uses camilla sinensis tea. A conversation of the health benefits of green tea versus black lead me to look deeper. Since I can remember, I have been an advocate of alternative and naturopathic health and so am drawn to loose green teas from Japan at the moment because of their high catechin content and low oxidation. My love of tea has managed to engage and inspire me to know more about farming, geology, processing, chemistry, biology, history, economics, artisanal tea ware, trade routes and of course the endless subtleties of aroma and taste.
