Oh ok. Thanks for the explanation. So my OG should not change depending on when I add it to the mash?

Just purchased dragon well loose leaf green tea and am going to attempt the the "dry tea" method for about 4 days. I am still conflicted about the amount. The aroma is stronger than I expected with predominate grassy and earthy notes.
Gonna just throw it in loose and strain it when I keg on Sunday. Trying to decide between 1 or 2 oz for a 5 gallon batch. This is a very light bodied and colored beer so I definitely do not want to overdo it because I think it could end up with an almost musty character.
From what I can tell, about 7.5 oz of tea would be used to make 5 gallons of average strength tea so 1-2 oz seems pretty minimal...
Any feedback on amount?
you can always add more, can't take it out though. start with the 1-2 you are planning and if you need more you can put some more in a sanitized tea ball and drop it in the keg.
