How many cups can I prepare from 1 bag/canister of your tea?

Gyokuro and Sencha 

green tea number of cups


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. 

20-25 cups (not counting reinfusions) per bag.

Matcha

Matcha amount of servings

This wonderful tea usually comes in a 30g (1.1 ounce canister). 1/2 level teaspoon (2g) for 120 to 180cc (4 to 6 ounces) of hot water. 1 heaping spoonful if you use a chashaku (bamboo spoon).

15 to 20 servings per 30g canister.

Tea Bags

tea bags number of cups


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.
