Have you ever read a book, watched a movie or show, and/or listened to a podcast for a 2nd or 3rd time and laughed at a new joke or realized a new detail?
Just like rewatching a show you can re-steep a tea blend to explore all the flavor profiles the tea has to offer and to extract the remaining flavor or benefits. With each steep you can wake up your tastebuds to tasting a more in-depth flavor or experience the taste of a slightly lower potency, which sometimes we can steep our teas one too many times.
Teas can be re-steeped not just for flavor purpose but for benefits as well. The benefits are:
- Health properties. Get all the health benefits from that tea that you can
- Saving money and keeping coins in your pocket
- Reducing waste
- Trying new ways to reuse your tea not just for sipping
Any tea can be re-steeped for another cup but the question is how good will that cup of tea be? Teas we enjoy steeping a 2nd time:
- Two Peaches
- Zingy Blast
- Energy Adjustment
- Jazzy White
- Java Che
- Razzle Dazzle
- Cranberry Spice
- Masala Chai
Steeped teas we enjoy using ways other than sipping: Maybe in a hand or foot bath, steam facial, salt or sugar scrub, or adding it directly into the bath tub. Steeped tea leaves also make a wonderful addition to garden composts.
