How many cups can I prepare from 1 bag/tin of your teas?

Gyokuro and Sencha 

green tea in cup
1 bag is usually 100g (3.5 ounces). 1-2 level teaspoons for 120 to 240cc (4 to 8 ounces depending on how strong you like your tea) of hot water. About 20-25 cups (not counting reinfusions) can be made from one bag.

Matcha

This wonderful tea usually comes in 30g (1.1 ounce tins). You should use 2g (1/2 level teaspoon) for 120 to 180cc (4 to 6 ounces) of hot water. 15 to 20 servings per 30g tin. If you use a chashaku (bamboo spoon) 1 heaping spoonful.

Tea Bags
15 bags per box.

Sencha tea bags can be infused as many times as you like

With gyokuro tea bags we recommend no more than two infusions per bag.

Do not move the tea bag back and forth during preparation (like you do with black tea). This will make the tea cloudy and a little bitter.

Simply let the bag sit for 2 minutes. If you would like stronger tea gently move it to and fro just before removing the bag.
