They do fit compactly together, but it is a bit frustrating that the cup holds just a little less than the gaiwan part (what is it called again, the not-quite gaiwan?). I wish the cup was a bit less teeny so I wouldn't always be trying to sip very carefully to avoid spilling that first little bit.
Those set are called "shiboridashi" by Japanese. I have tried to get at the Korean name of it but without success for now. But I will talk with few Korean artists how do them in few weeks so I am going to find out that name. But most probably it came from Japan during Japanese occupation in beginning of the last century.
And about the capacity: You don’t have to fill shiboridashi to the top and your problem is not problem any more
and for now-Would you like cup of MalCha?:
