When you use the same Tea leafs severel times, what is your favorite time in general?

I mean first, second, third time etc

I think my favorite is the second time

Maybe it is because of the type of tea leaves I am used to (black tea), and the fact that I often have milk as well, I would say the first time tastes the best for me.

Do you let it steep longer the second and third time?

#2 most of the times but not always. Japanese green teas is normally an ecception because you pour the tea directly the second and third time.

But with oolong and pu-erh I have the brewing scheduale.
First time 30 sek, second time 1 min, third time 1,5 min, fourth time 2 min, fifth time 3 min, sixth time 5 min, seventh time 7 min, eigths time (rare) 10 min, ninth time 15 min etc

I'm the same as Jordan, I never even think to reuse my tea.

All the best, Leia
