With just a small range of great teas you can offer something really special.
What Quantity of Tea should I use?
There is always a slight subjective element to this answer depending on personal preferences and you will no doubt have customers with quite a few of their own when it comes to tea!
We would always suggest measuring tea by weight and not volume for each type of tea but to give you a rough guide for the majority of black teas you will use around 2.5g serving of tea per 250ml cup.
For those looking for a stronger cup, simply use more tea leaves, but keep the recommended infusion time the same – leaving tea leaves in the water for longer doesn’t make the tea any stronger, just more astringent and bitter.
So if you are using 2 cup teapots then you would require to use 2 servings of tea per pot. We always suggest to ‘test drive’ the teapots with your new teas before serving to customers
If your budget allows, it’s really good to invest in a purpose made 1 Cup measuring spoon for tea as these make measuring tea so much easier for you and your staff. We have our favourite for food service and you’ll find it under the Accessories tab inside our online store.
