Last night, I had a second and third brewing from my Dragonwell leaves. They were both as tasty and enjoyable as the first, if not better. I think I could have gotten more brewings but it was quite late and I needed to get to bed.

2nd brewing: 5 min
3rd brewing: 7 min 30 sec

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C
Cofftea

You didn’t save the leaves for this morning?

I’m not sure I’m comfortable leaving tea leaves out on the counter over night. Refrigerating does not seem like the right thing to do either. So I drink what I can during the course of an afternoon or morning. Cofftea, I think you should some of this tea and see how many steepings you get from the leaves. You are the multiple steepings master!

I agree with you about leaving the leaves overnight chrine. Wet leaves get moldy very quickly so I only use them for my initial steepings and if sitting around for more than a few hours they are thrown out.

@chrine- I definitely would, but I have absolutely no storage room left. As far as multiple steepings, I’ve never had a problem leaving them out (I NEVER refrigerate). I’ve even left dragon well and needle teas out for 2 nites due to them refusing to die.

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
