Made from leaves that have not been oxidized.
That's correct. Many loose leaf teas can last for multiple brews. It would in fact be a waste to discard the tea only after one brew.

- Make sure the leaves are fully strained, and leave as less water as possible in the mug/teapot
- Cover the mug/teapot with a lid to better preserve the tea
- Do steep the leaves only during the same day, do not keep it overnight for the next day.
- Increase the steeping time for the second (and subsequent) brews gradually. For more info on preparing green tea you may also check this guide: how to steep green tea
