I will try to answer this somewhat together. When I view this "set" I think of gyokuro the way many Japanese like to enjoy it, veryyy rich, strong, concentrated which can be done with a pretty high grade Gyokuro. I will be anxious to try the O-Cha Kame in this!!!
So thus, this is a small set. Crappy tea in these cups would be a waste of time, but most excellent tea would be most excellent. I would agree, Herb in that this does command attention.
TBH, I will cheat from time to time when using this set, I will use some small white Deishi Guinomi that tbh I orginally purchsed to use with a Deishi Houjin when I finally got one (8 months later, I finally have one.
). This will be more casual. But I will definitely use these cups when I am using this set to brew a super premo Gyokuro like Kame!
The Yuzamashi "practically holds" 80-90ish ml. Could hold more but it would get awkward and HOT. The Houjin holds 60-80 ml, practically speaking. I happened to use all 5 cups btw, and it worked perfectly filling the houjin, filling the cups, then pouring into the Yuzamashi. By this time, the water was almost cool enough.
