Another from the regional group buy. I tried the Bitaco Black a few days ago, and so I’m intrigued to follow that up with the green. This is the February 2016 harvest.
On the whole, it strikes me as another subtle, lightly flavoured green. Perhaps I’ve just had too many of those lately, but I was hoping for some oomph and I’m really not finding it. It has a pleasant flavour – at least, what I can find of it. It’s like fresh garden pea, quite sweet, with a slightly deeper flavour (green beans) towards the end of the sip. I suppose I could brew it longer, or use more leaf, and that might increase the flavour to a level I’m happy with. I’d be a little worried about the potential for bitterness and/or astringency if I tried that, however.
I like this one – it’s a palatable green, with a pleasant, mildly vegetal flavour. It’s just a little on the watery side for my liking.
