How many cups can I prepare from 1 bag/tin of your teas?

Matcha usually comes in 30g (1.1 ounce tins). You should use 2g (1/2 level teaspoon) for 120 to 180cc (4 to 6 ounces) of hot water. 15 to 20 servings per 30g tin.

If you purchase a Japanese Tea Ceremony Set then one heaping spoonful from the chashaku (bamboo spoon) for 4 to 6 ounces of water.

Gyokuro and sencha- 1 bag is usually 100g (3.5 ounces). 4g (1 level teaspoon) for 120 to 240cc (4 to 8 ounces depending on how strong you like your tea) of hot water. 25-40 cups can be made from one bag.

Powdered sencha- 30 packs per box. 1 pack makes one cup of tea so 30 cups per box.

There are 2 types of matcha- koicha and usucha. These are chanoyu (Japanese Tea Ceremony) terms and literally translate as "thick" and "thin" tea. Ajirogi matcha is koicha, our less expensive Uji Midori Matcha is usucha. You would probably use more tea when preparing Ajirogi Matcha but it all comes down to taste. There are no rules and you should prepare matcha your way. It may take 2 or 3 preparation attempts to find the concentration that is right for you.

Uji Tezumi gyokuro is a very expensive gourmet tea and double the amount is used when you prepare this tea. For more please click here.
