    Hi. I know this tread is quite old but I would like to say, in a formal written e-mail, a phrase like “I don’t want to take more of your time” or something like that, but as a very polite form to express in a very short sentence the idea of “I know your time is very valuable and that we have already discuss this issue, but I have more questions..”

    Any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks.

    That sounds fine to me, except I would say "take up."
