Yuzamashis are great tools for making tea. They are typically used to pour hot water into to cool it down until it is a suitable temperature for brewing sencha, gyokuro, and other teas that require lower temperatures. They are very handy if you don't have a kettle with an thermometer, as the water is typically ready to use when you can rest your hands on the outside without the heat being uncomfortable. They are also convenient to pour the tea into if the capacity of your cups is less than the vessel you are steeping in. If you regularly use a kyusu to make your teas, this will be a welcome addition to your teaware family.
This yuzamashi is rather large and holds roughly 12oz, making it a good addition for those who like to steep in larger pots.

I take this everywhere! Easy to use and so handy, this is my go-to when I'm on the go.

It comes with a neoprene sleeve for a little cushion and both the top and bottom unscrew for easy cleaning and versatility
You can make tea three ways with this set:

Be sure to heat the glass first before pouring freshly boiling water in to prevent the glass from cracking. Hand wash only.
Simple glass pitcher. Comes in two sizes and is ideal for when your pot is larger than your cups. It's also called a "fair cup" because everyone gets the same steep time when it's poured into a common vessel and then into cups.
Can be used with or without the strainer. Strainer comes with a stainless steel holder.
