The easy-to-hold grip and a knob on the lid that you can hold in place with one finger make it easy to pour tea with just one hand (usually when you pour tea from a Japanese tea pot you use one hand to hold the handle and the other to hold the lid in place). The tea cups are simple, stylish and nicely balanced.

Tea set includes tea pot and two cups
