# Measuring Implements

Let us know if you've found the perfect product for Adagio to sell.

### Measuring Implements

As we all know, the average idea for tea is 1 teaspoon of tea per cup of tea. This is all fine and well with the teas that have more volume and smaller leaves. However, those that I drink (green and white - especially white) tend to have larger leaves, so using a teaspoon measurement is not entirely practical.

I have seen measuring scoops before - would one of these work better? It would be really nice if Adagio could find a good scoop for tea that measures fairly accurately. I do fairly well at guessing, but being the perfectionist that I am...

Until you find something suitable, here's a thought:

Most greens/whites that are bulky can be measured as 2 tsp/6 oz water. Three teaspoons are equal to one tablespoon. When you measure a tablespoon of tea leaves, you get roughly two teaspoons of tea leaves - in my experience there's about one teaspoon of wasted space in each tablespoon. (I hope this makes sense.)

So, in the meantime, you can use a tablespoon measure for your greens/whites.

On a similar note, there's this scoop, which is perfect for making one pot of tea. You could use two scoops to make a pot of green/white tea. I have the "One Perfect Cup of Tea" scoop.

If you're realy into perfectionism, get a scale!

For home, I very well may. At work, however, I have found myself having to guestimate. Which I am not bad at, but even so.

You can make shampoo but you have to use the correct amount.

Apparantly not. My guess is they hit the first thread that looked convenient. This person's question does not even belong in this category.

Hello, My best recommendation would be to get a hold of some measuring spoons at Williams Sonoma.
http://ww5.williams-sonoma.com/
I was given a set as a gift and love them!! The smallest measurement I believe is 1/4 or 1/8 teaspoon.
They are small and flat and very easy to get the exact measurement. (Once you know what that is.) You can also take them apart from the rest of the set so you could take only one to work..?

They are perfect for this. You'll love them.

I pasted the link, but I couldn't find them on the website. I would request a catalog.

Good Luck

*chuckles* Either way, thanks for the suggestion! A flat measuring spoon would work a lot better for tea than the normal "bowl" sort.

I just use a regular spoon, if it doesn't look like enough I just add more. Should I be more exact? I don't know. I have always cooked with the mentality of "ah, that looks about right". It seems to work ok for me.
