"Lao Ban Zhang-Fu Zi Qin" (老班章-父子亲) is a meaningful raw Puerh tea independently created by the founder Mr. Chen Shenghe's son Mr. Chen Liubin, to express the love between father and son, and prove the persistence of following in father's footsteps to spread Pu-erh tea to the world.
Mr. Chen Liubin has grown up around tea and has studied tea with his father for more than a decade. After spending countless long days and nights of studies, he has made great progress in the mysterious field of Pu-erh tea blending.
The first "Lao Ban Zhang-Fu Zi Qin" was released in 2017. Five years later, this tea has been recreated, using tea to convey feelings and tell the story that "only love can be passed on."
