Backlog:

I actually sampled the 2012 version of this tea.

A rather unique Puerh … light in color and flavor. It smells more vegetative than earthy, which is also quite unique in a Puerh.

Sweet, smooth and mellow. No astringency. No bitterness. Just … smooth!

Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/11/11/2012-douji-hong-shang-dou-raw-puerh-tea-cake-china-cha-dao/

A 2011 raw puerh should never be earthy. A shu, yes. Sheng, never…

LiberTEAS

I usually find most puerh earthy on some level. Sheng are definitely less so than Shu, but I usually taste earthy notes. (Even though the title says 2011, I used the same listing for the 2012 … not that it matters.)

Charles Thomas Draper

It is too new to be earthy

LiberTEAS

I generally pick up on earthy notes in most Pu-erh. I also pick up on earthy notes in some white, green and black teas. They may not all taste of the same “earthy” quality, but it is still earthy to me.
