How many serving of tea will one packet of loose leaf tea give me?
This is one of the most asked questions we get, so here's a little guide to explain our packet sizing.
You can buy our Loose Leaf Tea in packets and tubs; we sell by weight not volume and so it can be tricky to know how many servings you'll get. We’ve worked out that our teas fall into 3 categories, Medium weight teas, Lightweight teas & Heavyweight teas.
Using a standard teaspoon or measure spoon we have got the scales out and measured each tea. Here's how many servings you'll get.
Medium weight teas
These are the most popular teas in our collection, Blended Tea, Black Tea, Flavoured Tea, Green Tea, Oolongs, will weigh approximately 2 grams on a standard teaspoon. Our packets of loose leaf tea are in the following sizes:
