How much loose tea should I use?

We recommend using 2 to 2.5 grams per 12 -16 oz water when brewing our loose teas. That's the same amount of tea as is in our sachets, which are meant for a big mug. If you don't have a scale, you can use this basic guide: For black and green teas, use a slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea. But for bulkier teas (like full-leaf white tea) and big leaf/flower herbals (like chamomile), use more like a heaping tablespoon.

Of course, it's all a matter of preference, so we encourage you to experiment when brewing your loose tea to find out how to best prepare the cuppa' to your liking.
