How Many Cups of Premium Tea Can You Brew From a 500gm Pack?

Posted on

There’s a lot of confusion about how much tea should you buy. It becomes all the more difficult if you love tea and frequently find yourself out of your favourite blend. The obvious choice then is to buy a bigger pack. In fact, you can save more per gram by going for a 250 gram or 500 gram packaging.
But here is the thing about buying a larger pack, you need to store it properly to preserve the taste. Exposure to air and light takes away the richness and composure of the tea leaves, therefore, you need two air-tight containers, one large and one small. Use the larger container to store the bulk while using the smaller one for your daily tea delights.

So how long will your tea stock last?
Let’s do some quick math here. If you buy a 500 gram pack of premium tea and use a smaller container of 50 gram capacity to store the portion for your daily use, you can ideally get 16 cups of tea from it. That is if you follow the 3 gram per cup rule.
