How to Store Tea Leaves Between Steepings

How to Store Tea Leaves Between Steepings | Cats & Teapots | Scoop.it
This is a question that I see often on r/tea. After speaking with several people, I believe I can shed some light on this issue. What I think is happening is that the ideals of Eastern steeping methods are mixing with Western steeping methods.
Sue Marchant's insight:

Having been brought up in the Western tradition, I was interested when I spent time in Moscow to realise that their way of making tea was very different. Instead of "one scoop per guest and one for the pot", my hosts would make a (smaller) pot of incredibly strong tea. Only a little of this was poured into each cup, which was then topped up with hot water from the samowar. That way, one pot of tea could last all day.
