Hi, everyone, I'm a newby to this forum.
I have a question and am seeking some assistance... I have been drinking green teas (black as well, but only Earl Grey and a couple of other varieties) for quite a while and I love them. The best thing to relax you at home and at the office, no doubt about that.
However, I only recently found out that one can resteep leaves. Since I am keen on saving some money and I am aching for that "better flavour" gained by resteeping, I think it's the thing for me. But my enthusiasm has been suprassed by technical problems.
1. How many pots do you use when you brew tea intened to be resteeped? -> I usually brew tea right in the mug, and drink it quickly afterwards, before it infuses for too long. I don't mind leaves in the cup, since they sink after a little while, and I can just drink the tea, thus leaving them behind.
2. Where do you keep the leaves in between steepings? They are wet and not suitable for lying about in pots. Besides, I am not sure how much time one can allow between steepings.
btw, ale's on me if you can help
Thanks in advance.
