The 11 piece purple clay Yixing tea set includes a teapot (or gaiwan), a tea filter, a tea pitcher and 8 tea cups. Basically, everything you need to prepare and serve tea gongfu style. Of course, it works no matter what brewing method you use.
Note the size! Chinese teapots and cups are much smaller than those we are used to in the west. They are made to serve tea for one or two.
