How many cups can I prepare from 1 bag/tin of your teas?
Gyokuro and Sencha
1 bag is usually 100g (3.5 ounces). 4g (1 level teaspoon) for 120 to 240cc (4 to 8 ounces depending on how strong you like your tea) of hot water. 25-40 cups can be made from one bag.
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.
Gyokuro tea bags can be infused more than once. We recommend no more than two infusions per bag. There are no rules- make as many as you like.
It is best to not move the teabag back and forth during preparation (like you do with black tea). Simply let the bag sit for 2 minutes.
