General description

Teapot and tea set in general is one of the most important things that help to brew the best cup of Vietnamese tea.

Vietnamese tea set includes 1 large teapot with a handle, 1 big teacup (optional), and 1-6 small teacups, and saucers. The large teacup is used for tea infusion to make tea color in each small teacup the same. If you don’t have a big teacup, pour a tea into each small cup. Tea sets are chosen according to the number of drinkers. For instance, for 1 person – a 70-120ml teapot, for two people – a 150-220ml teapot, for 4-6 people – a 250ml teapot.


Materials that are used to make tea set affect the aroma of tea. Different materials suit particular tea types.
