When my kyusu arrived I was a bit surprised at its size. When I made my order I wasn't really thinking about what 360cc translated to. (It's about 12oz.) So it's a pretty tiny teapot. However, it's actually the perfect size for brewing tea for 1-2 people. After having used it a few times, I have decided it is the absolute perfect teapot for me, and I can't imagine life without it. I even like the color after seeing it up close. I would recommend this kyusu to anyone who regularly brews green tea for 1 or 2 people at a time.
