First of all I'm amazed anyone thinks that making tea is too much of a hassle. That said, I need one of these, I never bother to make tea.
Who says your tea set can't be architecturally interesting? When not in use, I'd be happy to have a good looking stack.
I'm a sucker for stacking tea sets for one. I'm also a sucker for hand-painted animal faces, so this is pretty much the best gift you could ever give me.
I'm pretty sure I've had strawberry tea before. Perfect companion!
Who needs a whole matching tea service when this little three piece set is just as classy and way more compact?
