Hello,

What do native speakers call a set including a teacup and a saucer? Are there any special terms? My bilingual dictionary says it's either

single tea set
mug and saucer set

but the former might include a pot, for example; the problem with the latter is the word 'mug'. :-?

Thank you!

If it's just a cup and saucer, it's "a cup and saucer".
