  1. Black Tea: For a robust and flavorful cup of black tea, you'll typically use about 1 to 1.5 teaspoons of loose leaf tea per 8-ounce cup, or roughly 4 to 6 teaspoons per liter. Adjust the amount based on your personal preference for strength.

  2. Green Tea: Green tea tends to be milder in flavor than black tea, so you may want to use slightly more tea leaves. Aim for around 1.5 to 2 teaspoons of loose leaf green tea per 8-ounce cup, or approximately 6 to 8 teaspoons per liter.

  3. Herbal Tea: Herbal teas often have larger, lighter leaves and may require more tea leaves to achieve the desired flavor intensity. Start with about 2 to 3 teaspoons of loose leaf herbal tea per 8-ounce cup, or 8 to 12 teaspoons per liter, and adjust to taste.

  4. Experimentation: The beauty of brewing tea is that it's highly customizable. Feel free to experiment with different tea-to-water ratios to find the perfect balance for your taste buds. Keep in mind that stronger teas may require less steeping time to avoid bitterness.
