These taster bags are a great way to sample a tea without buying a larger pack. Each taster bag has enough tea leaves to brew a large family pot or can be split in half if you want to make an individual mug of tea. Do not forget to reinfuse your tea according to our brewing guide recommendations. This means that each taster bag will provide around 4-10 mugs depending on the tea selected.
To brew Western style, infuse about 2g (heaped teaspoon) of leaf per 300ml of 85c water for about 2 minutes. You can reinfuse up to 2 times by adding 60 seconds for every subsequent infusion.
To brew Gong fu style, infuse about 5g of leaf per 150ml of 85c water for about 5 seconds. You can reinfuse up to 5 times by adding about 5 seconds for every subsequent infusion.
