I can still remember the excitement when I got my first tea set from Master Heh Bong, and the feeling returns every time I buy another to add to my collection. Master Heh Bong’s tea set is the ideal size because it fits so nicely into your hands. The side handle is convenient, and the cups provide you with a good shot of Green or Oolong tea. The advantage of this set is that you can use it for yourself throughout the day,steep by steep when you need it or sit down with friends to share the experience. I usually have several tea pots going on at the same time located at different places in the house … and in my opinion no room should be without one. With a thermos of hot water you can stop,steep and then step on it to the next room or task! I drink lots of tea. Each steep is a half cup. And since the tea leaves can be re-steeped several times throughout the day or night, it makes it easy to space out and leave time between steeps. This way you don’t have to commit yourself to sitting down to tea if you don’t want to. Finally I find that the pottery that Master Heh Bong makes is durable and has a great weight balance. Only the brown tea set is available at this point. This tea set is gas Kiln Fired.
