Recently I started taking 740 mg of bulk Amla powder purchased from Amazon based on this study. (The study used only 500 mg, but it turns out that a single packed OO capsule holds 740 mg of the powder I bought. I figured the 50% discrepancy would not be a big deal, so I went with it.)
Five OO capsules will fit in a teaspoon, so your four teaspoons are approximately 15 g or 30 times the amount used in the study.
An "amla dosage" search turns up recommendations like these:
1.9 - 3.7 g
450 mg - 3 g
1 - 2 g
So based on what I have learned, I'm probably being too conservative and should consider upping the dosage. From my brief research, half a teaspoon twice daily seems like a reasonable upper limit to set.
So, all of this brings me to my question, Janpeter. How did you settle on four teaspoons? Is there a study or other reference that you recommend?
