Im New

I just bought the easy-to-use 16oz teapot, four tea samples, exclusive 'a guide to tea.' I got the Green Tea Sample Pack and I was just wondering how much tea, and water to put into the pot.Thank you. We drink a lot of loose teas and use an infuser so I am a little confused on this. :? :? :?

Hello and welcome. :D

For 16 oz Id suggest starting with 4 teaspoons, a measuring tsp, not a generic spoon, of tea, then adjust if needed--too strong, use less tea, and vice versa.

If you have a scale, try for 2 to 2.5 grams for each cup (6 oz of water) you will make for one round of infusions. This should be about one teaspoon of tea per cup, give or take.

So for one cup, use 1 tsp/2g of leaf for 6 oz of water. For two cups, use 2 tsp/4g to 12 oz water, etc.

Mind this is all just ball park estimation. Some greens taste better with more leaf, some with less. Try the teaspoon, then figure out what you'd like for the next time you brew that tea.

Oh, and I noticed you posted this message twice. I deleted the other one because we try to discourage multiple posting of the same information. I didn't see Space's response on that thread, so I apologize for the redundancy of advice.

I am also wondering can you use any loose tea in the IngenuiTEA Pot?

Yup. Any tea or herbal should be fine.
