This is so exciting! Once day there should be virtual tea table over skype
I dunno how I'll go here though since I don't own a kyusuu :/
Some Kyusu-less members use a gaiwan.
Once upon a time at a restuarant, I used the coffee cup with the saucer as a lid. It was awkward, but it worked.
Then another time flying to LV for WTE, I had just received shincha before leaving ... I used a napkin as a strainer in a paper cup. There was no way I was going to wait ... I have photos somewhere ... I called it "Shincha at 40,000 Feet."
But yeah, a Kyusu is more ... pleasant.
