I thought there was one, could not find it though. It would be nice to have a separate topic. Actually found this older topic too. viewtopic.php?f=20&t=16991
Received my houde order, brewed some liu an last night. The shacks from the bottom of the 2oz bag. Probably about 7-9 grams in 100ml. Two rinses.
Dry leaf smells rather sweet and clean. Similar in many ways to very heavy cooked shu. There is a white frost throughout, but not a trace of mold smell in dry leaf, or brewed (taste and smell).
Upon tasting...WHOA. Super strong, mix dirt/soil/gravel shu taste. Will cut down by at least half next time. Picture of brew on houde is way lighter then the dark shuness I brewed up.
After effects...this is where it gets interesting for me. After 4 brews I was told by the voice in my head/body (this guy sometimes can't be trusted ) to pour leaves out and be done. Children's questions kinda just blew by me. I was rather spaced out in an uncomfortable way, body felt wonkey, brain felt rather cloudy...(like the feeling when you have slight poisoning) for about one minute. After the initial shock on my body...I felt rather uplifted, energized, and generally good, as if by body just went through a small purge.
Were these effects as a result of detox or a poisoning. OR a little of both...or just all in the mind...should be interesting to see what a lighter brew produces.

Very clean and no mold whatsoever. It was from a good source (and cheap), so I consider it a heck of a deal. Like a VERY clean, sweet shu. Maybe I should buy a few more catties (600g bags)...
Definitely no green/TGY aromas to it though!
