Next, measure the correct amount of tea into your vessel
– A good standard guideline is one rounded teaspoon per eight oz. cup. This refers to a measuring teaspoon, not the teaspoon in your silverware set which is usually much larger than a true measuring teaspoon. This is just a general guideline. A very fine particle tea like Roobois is denser and thus more tea fits on a spoon, so you would probably only use a level teaspoon per cup. With a very large leafed bulky tea like White Peony you would only get a little bit of leaf on the teaspoon, so you would probably use two teaspoons per cup or a heaping tablespoon.
