- A box contains 240g of tea in 30 pre-packed bags containing about 8 grams of tea each.
- Depending on availability, the packaging bags design may differ from the one displayed in the image.
- Recommendation: since 8 gram may be a lot for a single person, we recommend to split one bag in 2 sessions by using 4g per session.
