Hi its me again with more dumbass newbie questions!!
(rather than start a new thread i'll just add to this one)
lets say i brew some green tea (one infusion) drink up, empty pot/gaiwan of water then go out for a couple of hours.when i come back can i reuse the cold tea leaves to make more cups?or does the 2nd/3rd infusion have to happen while the leaves are still warm?
i, in my quest 4 a decent cup of green tea, bought a tea thermometer. now i boiled the kettle and stuck the thermometer in :100 degrees centigrade, ok seems fine
now as soon as the water settled i poured it into my pre heated gaiwan with tea leaves and immediately stuck the thermometer in: 73 DEGREES !! i tried it about 5 times every time the tempreture struggled to top 75!!
what if i wanted to brew tea at 82 degrees (180 farenhite) which is recommended(most of the time)
don't get me wrong the tea is fine at 70 odd degrees but i'm a bit confused (easily done with me) as what to do!! ive been told not to put boiling water on green tea but if i wait any longer, by the time the water is in my gaiwan it will be below 60
if anyone has any advice i'd much appreciate it
