One thing I enjoy doing is letting my late evening teas sit in the Gaiwan of Yixing or whatever vessel was used overnight. Leaves and all. This was last nights tea. It was probably the fourth steeping. I always look forward to what I will encounter almost 24 hours later. This was nice and invigorating. The flavors are intense as you might expect. So every nuance that you have read about will be multiplied. It’s just another way to enjoy our favorite drink.

You sleep for 24 hours? ;-)

OH… you set up tomorrow night’s evening tea this evening.

When I first read this I thought you were steeping the evening over night for the morning’s first cup. But then you said 24 hours later, which suggested that your idea of “over night” was 24 hours.
