I am new to loose tea, and am the happy new owner of a Zarafina machine. My question is about how many times am I able to re-infuse/re-steep (I am not sure which terminology is correct) Rooibos? In fact, if someone doesn't mind answering, I would love to know this answer for all teas.
Many thanks in advance and Happy New Year!
Well, ohiosux...lol...I could change my name here to PAsux..
Steep=Infusion...you can interchange one with the other.
I am not certain how the Zarafina affects multible infusions...so perhaps someone can answer that...
Each tea is different...there is no abosolute rule of thumb on the number of infusions. I can get multible infusions out of virtually any tea assuming it is FRESH. Personal taste enters into the equation also...for instance, I do not bother trying to get multible infusions out of black tea...but you certainly can.
Experimentation is the best way to find out...
