Hello friends,

somebody knows how to properly wash Virginia leaves to make it taste as neutral as possible (nicotine as low as possible)?
To add molasses in the next step for hookah.

How hot needs the water has to be?
How many washing cycles for how many minutes?

I noticed that the water stays clean until it is hot enough, then it turns yellow/brown.

I had several tries but the leaves overcook and are dark greyish and unusable.

Now I reduced temperature and cycles, some leaves are still golden and good looking, but others are thin lifeless and I can see through them (not sure if I can still use them). Pictures attached.
