This set is perfect. Not only is the packaging amazing and it shipped and arrived safely (lots of bubble wrap and padding ensure a safe arrival), but the box itself is beautiful and perfect for displaying a set or gifting to a loved one. I'm in love with how beautiful it looks. Aside from the beauty of the set, it is quite functional and well-made. The gaiwan pours nicely and is wide enough that your fingers don't get burned. The gong dao bei is great and doesn't get too hot to handle when serving tea. The fine strainer and the holder for the strainer both work great as well, with the strainer managing to capture most of the debris from tea. I would highly recommend this set to anyone looking for a reliable set that comes with everything you need to brew great tea. I love this set and it is by far the only set one would ever need. I'm going to treasure it for as long as I live!
