Started this one yesterday and just continued on into this morning. I am used to shou being very dark. This one was clear and the color of sun tea – light orange. The wet leaf is very dark and musty/earthy smelling but the brew is extreme mellow horse tack. Very, very easy to drink. I started with a 30s steep and the last I let steep about 4 minutes to see if it would turn inky. The answer is nope. A very nice poo-air.
