I guess it counts as weighing my tea if I'm present when it gets weighed and packaged. I usually help a little too if i don't get distracted tasting.

do you usually calibrate your weighing scale regularly? some times a bit of imbalance or tilt that develops over the years will result in non-linearity in weighing.hobnob wrote:Hi,
I've had a search but was unsuccessful; I know about weighing for brewing habits but what about checking purchases?
I appreciate that turning a blind eye depends on the amount of tea purchased.
I've weighed some of my smaller tea purchases and found 500mg -700mg less in some.
Do you bother contacting the vendor after finding a discrepancy?
Hopefully the poll is thorough enough and clear!

I think it's also important to keep in mind that tea shops (at least in NYC where I am) are required to use scales that meet a certain standard. These are a different type than most people would have at home so your measurements may not be exactly the same as what you paid for anyway
