Man, what are you making and how do you make it? Mine seem to be pretty much dead the third time around.
Depends on the sencha. And depends on personal preferences, taste. Sitting and relaxing with a pot of sencha, I often feel I would be wasting good tea by stopping at 3. But admittedly beyond this yields results more in the realm of TeaWater ... but it a nice "cool down" at the end of a great session.
I also start pretty rich, 1.25 or so grams per ounce of water is where I seem to be these days for sencha.
