Recently, the Beijing Tea Association, together with the West Lake Longjing Tea Association and the West Lake Longjing quality control center, held a special briefing in Beijing, announcing that authentic West Lake Longjing tea must be correctly and authentically labeled; and must have affixed "anti-fake" labels.

Duan Baolan, chairman of the Beijing Tea Association, explained that no matter where the West Lake Longjing tea is purchased, one should check whether or not there is the symbol for "PGI (shorted from Protected Geographical Indication) People's Republic of China."

According to farmers' tea planting areas, the association calculates the output of spring tea; and then determines the number of signs to distribute.

When purchasing tea from farmers, tea businessmen should take the "anti-fake" labels from tea farmers to the quality control centre; and change them into special "anti-fake" labels for re-sale.

As a result, any emerging problem can be directly traced back to each tea farmer.
