This an absolutely unique 5 cup tea set made by Master Heh Bong, and it is simply because I asked him to make me a couple of left handed tea sets. A very sturdy tea set that is gas Kiln Fired. The pot holds 10 Oz of water per steeping.Reminder: You control the strength of your tea by varying the steeping times, moving from light to strong by giving each infusion more time. I tend to use 2-3 teaspoons and shorter steeping times. This way I make multiple infusions.
