Question on the Green Chop on Puerh Wrapper

Postby Fatman2 » Oct 1st, '08, 09:38

Hi,

Please have a look at some of the puerh beengs. On the wrapper, there is a green chop/stamp. Not sure what it is but do you know when that chop was initially used?

Pray tell if know.

Do you mean the "tea" Chinese Character surrounded by the Zhong character? That was created when Chinese industry went fell under the "Peoples" jurisdiction. It represents The character represents tea of course and the Zhong represents China. It symbolizes Chinese tea being spread across the world. This is why the Zhong character is in the shape of a circle, representing earth.

As far as I'm aware, it means organic, although this bing isn't advertised as organic.

The characters underneath mean "Green Food"

'Lu'=Green 'Se'=Colour 'Shi Pin'=Food

In chinese Green Food refers to food grown without pollution

fat man, don't worry about this so called chop. it's just a logo.

there is another logo for organic certification and another for the chinese food quality control. the latter is this blue circle with a white s inside it, like below :
