Ammount of Tea to Water

Postby Joe Z » Aug 12th, '07, 20:30

I just got a large order of samples from Adagio, I REALLY love the Jasmine #12, it's one of the best things I've ever tasted, I really love the flowery taste and smell. I was wondering how much tea to water I should use. Is it supposed to be 1 teaspoon per cup or more?

If someone could give me a guide on this for all kinds of tea that would be great.

It's really all up to your own taste. As a general rule, I like about 2 grams worth of any tea per 6-8 oz of water when brewing in the English method. This can be anywhere from a teaspoon for more smaller leaves like a Keemum or a couple a tablespoons for something larger like a White Peony.

The Jasmine Pearls are a bit of touch and go. Some people like just 5 or 6 pearls for a cup. Others like 10-15. I guess it's just up to your own experimentation.
