​Depending on personal preferences and taste, I would suggest measuring tea by weight and not volume for each type of tea but to give you a rough guide for the majority of black teas you will use around 2.5g serving of tea per 250ml cup.

For those looking for a stronger cup, simply use more tea leaves, but keep the recommended infusion time the same – leaving tea leaves in the water for longer doesn’t make the tea any stronger, just more astringent and bitter.

So if you are using 2 cup teapots then you would require to use 2 servings of tea per pot.

If your budget allows, it’s really good to invest in a purpose made 1 Cup measuring spoon for tea as these make measuring tea so much easier for you .
