Do you use your green tea leaves for the second time too? :)

As I know using green tea for the second time (aka not swapping to a new filter for example) is quite the useful idea because other healthy things come out of the leaves...

I usually re-steep it once, then I'll throw the leaves away.

An old habit that I learned from my Irish Grandmother - I think she had a little of that frugal Scottish blood as well!

When using loose leaf tea, I steep the leaves at least twice because I buy premium (expensive) tea, but after that it just depends on the kind of tea whether or not it'll have any flavor left for further steepings.

I only drink black tea, but I'll reuse them once if I'm making another cup soon.

I usually don't use loose leaves, but tea bags and I do reuse them.

No. I don't do green tea, but when I do other kinds of tea I just steep it once and get fresh the next time. I guess I'm wasteful.

I resteep if the flavor is still there! Tea has so many health benefits that it just seems silly to me to drink a certain kind or in a certain way just for the sake of that -- you'll be doing your body good no matter what!

So do I, but it tastes just as good and I use the perfect tea maker

For my herbal teas, no, but for green and black teas, yes I try to re-steep them. Tea time is a favorite with me and my partner.

I'll steep other teas a second time, but not green.
