so would a 120 ml pot become 105-115?
So many factors to consider... How many grams of leaf are we talking? What type of tea? How many infusions in to the session are we? etc.
A high fired TGY brewed in a true kung fu style can result in maybe 60ml of tea or less from a 120ml pot, whereas a 120ml pot 1/3 full of dancong could result in 110ml or more in the first few infusions. There's a very wide range.
