Only other thing to check is the Tee itself. Maybe the seat is dinged or damaged.
Is the leak coming from the thread area or from the tubing side of the nut?
You could try not flaring the second flare all the way down. So when you tighten the fitting, the flare will seat against the bottom of the "T" fitting and then be compressed to fit the seat inside the "T".

Good Luck
