I usually went two brews for that one. Keeping first brew not too long 1-2 mins, slightly cooler water, second boiling few mins , not too much leaf

Some can. The bancha houjicha at yuuki is a good example of multiple infusions. Fill pot about 1/2-2/3 full (which really isn't that much since leaves are so large and take up a lot of volume. Short initial infusions, can get 4-6 very tasty brews.
