I bought some loose tea leaves, Green tea Jade Citrus Mint. It is tasting good and I am liking it but, I think I am using too much tea as I am making it.
The direction say to use 1 tsp per 1 cup water. I boil the water and pour the water into the steeper and let it do its thing for a few mins whatever the reccomended time is. But it is too watery and has no taste.
So when I try again another time I put more tea leaves in the steeper. But it seems like I am putting way too many leaves in the steeper and am wasting a lot. But I seem to like it stronger.
So, I guess my question is, is this whole tea making process just a matter of taste? Or are the leaves maybe old ?
I know that is no " law" on how many tea leaves you can use but I just don't want to waste anymore than I have to if I am doing something wrong.
Any advise ? Thanks!!
