Tea Tips

Posted

Here are some tips to help you enjoy your loose leaf tea to the fullest.

How much tea a bag of loose leaf tea makes

Of course, how much tea a bag of tea makes depends on the tea itself. Generally, a denser, smaller leafed or cut tea makes more per teaspoon than a looser, bigger leafed tea. And, it also depends on your own personal taste. However, here are some general guidelines as to how many cups of tea you can make from different sizes/weights of tea bags.  

  • 10g = 3-5 cups of tea
  • 50g = 15-25 cups of tea
  • 100g = 30-50 cups of tea
  • 150g = 45-75 cups of tea
