Measuring Loose Leaf Tea

Do you measure your loose leaf tea? 
Or, do you weigh your tea to be able to brew the exact amount? 
Many tea drinkers just "eyeball" it and guess at how much tea to put in the pot or teacup.
Bruce Richardson told me eventually you will learn the correct size of a "pinch." 
I measure my tea in a "1 CUP OF PERFECT TEA" spoon.
these can be purchased from many different vendors and tearooms. 
This is the way I measure my loose leaf tea at home. 
When I make large quantities of tea for groups, I weigh the tea for a precise measurement.
The most tea I have made at one time is 450 cups for a fundraiser afternoon tea.
