But please can somebody recomend me some standard infusion time,..do you start with 5s, 10s, 15s,...or you make longer infusions and start at 15s, 30s,...
All i know is that some people make 2 cleaning infusions.
I think you already answered your own question. Not just the personal taste thing, but also depends how much tea you're using, how much water, and how fast your brewing vessel pours. I don't really think about time, nor do I think the difference between, say, the timing of infusion one and infusion two. Pour the water in, pour the water out (wait a breath or two in between if it makes you happy). If it's not strong enough, next time, let it sit a little longer. It's not rocket science, nor will tea that's a little too weak or a little too strong kill you.
Especially if you're using a decent amount of tea (say, > 5g / 100ml), I think most of the early infusions should be about the same length of time. Once it starts to thin out, maybe around the 8th infusion or so, start brewing for longer. Just let the color and taste be your guide.
What I would recommend is airing the tea out (just in a dark area open to the room's air in a small bowl or dish) for a couple of days before drinking.
