When filling the cup, over-fill, like to the rim. When you place the lid on water will spill over into the saucer, using the lid slightly tip the cup so that the water above the rim spills into the saucer even more, until your water level is slightly above the rim so it seals. Brew and then just use the 3 point method with the lid and cup the pour off the brew. I don't mean to tell you what to do, but personally I'm finding I'm getting a better cuppa with this method. I think because of the size of these, using the saucer like a tea boat to retain temp. is important. I just had a yummy gyokuru session in this way by both preheating the ware and using the above method to keep temp. Thanks and enjoy!
