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.
