What's your ideal quantity when buying tea? 1 oz., 2 oz., 4 oz., etc.?

I’m revisiting our sizes to see if changing anything would make sense, both for us and for you. Right now, we carry a (1) sample size – 10 cups and a (2) 2 oz. size – 25 cups.

If you could choose, what would be your ideal size?

Thanks!

1oz is probably the most common and preferred size I buy. I may go to 2oz if it’s a killer deal or if I know I like that tea. Teas that I want as permanent stock I stick around 2oz. I used to buy 4oz, but I have so much teas it is hard for me to get through 4oz!

Though, sometimes with heavier teas, like a fruit herbal, I’ll sample it at 2oz.

For smaller sample sizes, I’m happy with 3-5 cups.

I prefer smaller sizes too since I like to drink a variety of teas. 1oz at a time is ideal for me!

Usually when trying for the first time 2 oz, if I really like it or if its a cheaper priced tea then 4 oz.

I prefer 1 oz for finding out if I like something and then I’d buy more if I get it again in the future, likely just 2 oz unless I REALLY like it or as Awkward Soul said, it’s something heavier. I’d be happy picking up 2 oz of something I like, but say it was a fruit tea, I’d go for 4 oz easily.

I like small sample sizes if it is something I haven’t tried before, 0.5 to 1 oz. It is hard to by 2 oz of something if you have never tried it before. I generally buy teas I like in 2 or 4 oz sizes. If it is a tea I love and that I drink a lot, I have bought as much as 1 lbs at a time.

For a sample, 0.5 to 1 ounce. If I really liked it, then usually 2 ounces.

1oz is nice to try and 2 if I know I love it!

1oz is my preferred size when buying, and then when I re-buy I’ll either pick up 1-2oz depending on how much I like it and how fast I’ll drink through it!

I guess right now your samples are so big they must be fairly close to an ounce. (I didn’t realise that they were that big!)

50 or 100grams (2-3oz?) for teas i´ve tasted and like.
Prefer to try samples of others.

For a staple in my tea closet, 4 oz. That’s limited to about 2 or 3 absolute favorites. For a tea in “ordinary rotation” – one that I know I like but that isn’t an “essential” – 2 oz. I have a lot of these so I don’t want to stick with one for too long since i enjoy the variety.

For a new tea that I haven’t tried before but sounds intriguing, 1 oz.
