What is the best way to dry green tea leaves after the first infusion?

I have recently started drinking green tea and was wondering if anyone knows the best way to dry the tea leaves after the first or second infusion? I don’t want them to get stale or anything. I know that you are supposed to keep them in a dark place until use, but it’s hard to do that when you are trying to dry them after the first or second uses. Is it even necessary at that point?

    Hi Lori, yes you can to dry green tea leaves after the first infusion in a dry, dark place, but green tea leaves not accepted to dry. After you have emptied the teapot completely for the first serving, the wet leaves will not continue to steep. You can infuse the leaves again.

    Spread the leaves in a thin layer on a paper towel. Put a plate under the paper towel to keep the absorbed liquid from possibly staining your counter top. The thinner the layer of leaves, the faster they’ll dry…don’t let them stay damp, they’ll mildew. Of course, spreading the leaves means taking them out of the teabag unless you’re using loose stock.

    How many infusions can you get from a standard tea bag before the leaves are spent? I’d love to get more than a couple uses from my teabags
