The directions on the back of the bag say to pour boiling water over tea bag and let sit for 2-4 minutes as desired before removing the bag. While these directions are fine for those in zero G environments, I think I would have a big mess on the floor if I didn't use a mug.
Also, 2-4 min is an awful big window. At what point does the tea start to become bitter? I also remember hearing that green tea should be prepared with water just under boiling temp. What is the best way to brew green tea from a bag? I would buy loose and do it old school style, but I dont know if the management would dig a tea ceremony going on in the break room.
For what it's worth, each bag holds 2g of tea.

If that doesn't give you enough of the experience you want, then increase the number of bags with a smaller increase of water. Usually, I brew greens with a porportion of 3 grams of tea to 6 ounces of water. So you could use two bags in 8 ounces of water.
