How much loose leaf tea per cup?

One of the beauties of loose leaf tea is the ability to customize each cup to suit your preferences. But when it comes to brewing the perfect cup, getting the right amount of tea leaves is key. So, how much loose leaf tea should you use per cup?

The ideal amount of loose leaf tea per cup depends on several factors, including the type of tea, personal taste preferences, and desired strength. As a general guideline, here's a recommended starting point:

  1. Standard Recommendation: A common rule of thumb is to use approximately 1 to 2 teaspoons of loose leaf tea per 8 ounces (1 cup) of water. This measurement can vary depending on the size and density of the tea leaves.

  2. Experimentation is Key: The recommended amount is a good starting point, but feel free to adjust according to your taste preferences. If you prefer a stronger brew, you can increase the amount of tea leaves, or if you enjoy a lighter flavor, you can use fewer leaves.

  3. Consider Tea Type: Different types of tea may require different brewing parameters. For example, delicate green and white teas may require fewer tea leaves, while robust black teas may benefit from a higher leaf-to-water ratio.
