Easy, convenient, and safe to take around on a business trip, vacation, or just to your workplace. This Portable Travel Tea Set will be perfect for when you long for a good cup of tea.

The Magpie (xi que 喜 鹊) is a symbol for happiness, since the first character is the same word as happy (xi 喜). One can say "there is a happy bird (magpie) on the tip of the plum branch" as xi shang mei shao (喜上梅稍) which sounds exactly like saying xi shang mei shao (喜上眉稍) which means "happiness up to one's eyebrows". This expression means "very happy". A pair of magpies symbolizes marriage based on an ancient legend concerning two heavenly lovers, the Oxherd and the Weaver Girl/Maiden (Qixi 七夕).

This travel teaware set includes: 1 Gaiwan, 1 pitcher, 6 tea cups, 1 tweezer, padded case.

Specifications:

  Gaiwan volume: 120cc (standard size to brew all tea)

  Pitcher: 130cc

  Cup: 35cc
