What does 50g of tea look like and how much should I buy?

It's actually a pretty good question, as the amount of tea, or at least the appearance of the amount of tea you'll get when you purchase 50g can vary quite a lot.

The main three types are -

  • Fluffy (this is just what I call it ) such as Hops tea.
  • Normal - Your regular black and green tea types, along with some herbal teas. This is the most common type and the amount you should normally expect.
  • Heavy - This includes herbal 'roots' such as Valerian and a few other types. You can place less in the tea strainer to still get the full effect.

So when you're ordering online with us, just keep in mind that the amount you'll receive may vary depending on the actual weight of the tea. In reality, this doesn't really affect the 'amount' you're getting that you can actually use.

If you're brewing Hops tea, you'll need to use more than you would to brew Bacopa tea - so it roughly all evens out in the end! It's easier to visualize, so  here's a few images to help get a clearer understanding.

Here's 50g of Bacopa Tea...

and here's 50g of Hops tea (the kind I said was fluffy) for comparison...

50 grams of hops tea

You don't even want to know what 200g of hops tea looks like!
Herbal teas do tend to be 'lighter' in general than more well known and regularly used teas - and therefore can increase the sizing of the packaging needed and therefore the shipping costs, which is one reason why they can be more difficult to find online.

How much tea should I buy?

Honestly, if you're just trying out a herbal tea for the first time - we strongly recommend the 50g option. This will give you more than enough time to see if you like the taste, and if the benefits listed have the desired effects for your particular body type. Not every person will react the same way to every type of herbal tea.

For example with stress and anxiety - some people may react better to Passionflower tea, whilst others may find more relief with Valerian tea.

Also keep in mind that you can re-use most tea up to three times. This will bring you over the stated 25 cups of tea per 50 grams and can last up to 6-8 weeks.

Excellent quality

I've tried many organic teas before, but the tea from tealife is truly exceptional. It's clean and fresh and a very good price aswell I might add. Love it 😊

Hi Benjamin, thanks for your great review! PawPaw Leaf has been popular from day one since we got it in.
Lemon Myrtle

Very thankful to the team @ Tea Life, one of my favourites is always Lemon Myrtle and I use it in tea as well as a lot of dishes that I cook, great as an ice tea also with a combination of mint, hard to find but could count on Tea Life and highly recommend with their ability to fast track the order to their customers, thanks guys.

Hi Daniel, thanks for your review! Lemon Myrtle is really versitile and blends easy with many other things. That's why you'll see it in a fair few of our other blends. Did you know it contains more of the compound that gives lemon its flavour, than a lemon does?
Tea strainer cup does exactly as promised!

Very study and of a nice minimalist design. The size of strainer and cup allows me to reallly pack it full of my favourite tea!

Hi Caitlin, thanks for your review on this new product! I think you're one of the first. It's a good alternative to the top hat cup which is abit more fragile.
Wonderful Loose Leaf Decaf Tea

Quick delivery, delicious tea, fresh aroma and taste.

Really enjoy this tea for a subtle change to straight green tea. Slightly sweet but not overpowering.

Hi Erika, thanks for your review! I think this one is a hidden gem as I've mentioned in replies to other reviews.
