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

RSS

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.

Tea Life is the best

Haha thank you! I've shared this to our Facebook page :)
Best Peppermint Tea

I love peppermint tea and have tried many loose leaf and bag varieties over the years. This tea is the BEST one I have had. I could tell I was in for a magical experience from the moment I opened the packet. It tastes wonderful. I could not recommend this tea highly enough. I will be buying more in the future!

Hi Sarah - wow what a great review, thank you! That's much appreciated. We've always got a lot on hand as we need to use this for a lot of other blends as well :)
Great tea and great service

The Teas are great taste and awesome quaility love drinking the night wish

Hi Leanne, thank you - this one was created as it's different to the rest of the other bedtime teas such as goodnight sleeping.
Another lovely mellow tea bloom

The yellow chrysanthemum bloom is very beautiful sitting on it's bed of green as this bloom opens into a slightly aniseed smelling tea at first, but when fully brewed tastes like a mellow silver needle tea that has a very subtle, fruity, sweet overtone. It's not overpowering or dominating in anyway and is very refreshing.

Hi Casey, thank you for your review! I really hope those samples have arrived....
Happy with my tea

Unable to purchase Decaf leaf tea from the supermarket It was refreshing to find that i could purchase this seemingly elusive product online at "Tea Life".
The service was excellent and the tea arrived promptly. I'm very happy with my tea purchase and would recommend this company. Many thanks Tea Life.

Hi Liz, thank you. We'd love to expand our decaf range actually but it's difficult to get a hold of. Hopefully this year will bring some new decaf teas!
