From Chen Sheng tea factory. ( teaurchin shop)

Chen Sheng made Lao Ban Zhang famous by monopolizing the supply and building a large factory in the village. 陈升一号 is the signature blend from the Chen Sheng factory and contains enough Bulang and Banzhang material to deliver a mouthful of strong flavors and a powerful chaqi. Our cakes are from the first production run of 2010, and already show promising signs of aging.
The tigers printed around the edges of the cake indicate it was made in 2010, the year of the tiger. We only stock the 2010, as Chen Sheng stopped putting Banzhang material in their Yi Hao cakes from 2011 onwards.

Brews a golden brown. Definitely a strong flavor, citrus and smoke in perfect proportion. Very high quality leaves. Some good bitterness, a little huigan, but I keep tasting a pronounced sourness which to me is a flaw. It is a pretty good tea, but I personally didn’t like it as much as the other reviewers.

I have seen that one online, looks interesting. I have yet to put in an order with them.

Tea Urchin is a top notch outfit. This tea is definitely high quality, as are most of their house teas.

This is a tea to savor and enjoy! Sampling before I make the final decision to purchase a full cake (punch line first – no question about the purchase now). The dry leaf is beautiful – light compression means lots of intact full leaves. Color is what I would describe as “mousy” brown.
While the aroma is enticing (sweet with a fruity overtone), of course sipping the tea soup provides the greatest pleasure – sweet, soft and creamy in the mouth with a pleasant swallow. There is a very gentle kuwei [pleasant bitterness] which I thoroughly enjoyed. Roughly 12 steeps and the tea continued to give – smooth until the very end. Cannot wait to get a whole cake to savor and enjoy over the years to come.

Seeing how the puerh of the day post has been going I decided to break this one out. It will actually be my second tasting of this cake. It seems loosely compressed so I was able to break out 10 grams very easily. I am using the Gaiwan to keep it pure in essence. I did a very short rinse, actually pouring the water out once it covered the leaves. I let it set about 20 mins or so to open up. it has a nice green pea aroma to it when I opened the lid up. I did 3 short 5 second steeps and put it all in one cup. this is not a subtle sheng but a tongue tingling honey sweet shot of mouth-feeling tea that will excite your tongue. It trails off with a slight enjoyable bitterness and this is one you can feel after you drink it. This is a very lively tea that I probably shouldn’t drink this late at night. This really a fine tea. Camphor ,citrus and some slight pine on the taste buds.
