Hmmm. My experience differs. I'll typically get 2 steepings from (what I consider to be) a decent black tea -- say, darjeeling #22, yunnan gold, golden monkey, oolong #40 (which I liken more to a black tea than oolong).
They key is to make sure you stop the first steep at no more than 5 min.
And, of course, there's Pu-Erh (tho' sadly, not adagio's offerings).
A different animal that, like oolong, will provide good, novel experiences for 3, 4, 5 or more steepings.
