I don’t know about anyone else, but I re-steep greens and whites, but never blacks.
On this occaision, I decided to try it.
So I had a pot of this at about 4pm and gave it another run at 8pm.
I don’t think I could distinguish between the pots. Both had the fine, lingering slightly leathery aftertaste of a good ceylon following a refreshing front of mouth taste.
Looks like I’ll be resteeping some blacks from now on.
Has anyone else been re-steeping blacks?

Take my comments w/ a grain of salt- save chais, I’m just not a black tea person. When I do drink non chai blacks, I do try to resteep them as much as I can, but I don’t get nearly as many infusions as I do from green, white, oolongs, or pu erhs. The exeption was 52teas’ Beer Tea, but that was because it didn’t act like your typical black tea.

It depends on the black. Some of the blacks I have take it well, and the others either become instantly too weak to carry a second cup or too bitter for me to enjoy the second one. There are a few in my cabinet that I can usually get three good steeps out of, however, so it’s definitely worth experimentation.
