More info

Jin Luo (literally Golden Snail) is thus named for its tightly twisted, spiral-shaped leaves that resemble snails; snail being a beautiful word in Chinese. 🙂 Mr. Li harvested these classic “Da Ye Zhong” (read “big leaf”) leaves in the early spring as a complete bud set of one leaf and one bud. Yunnan, considered by many to be the birthplace of tea, is famous for its chocolatey crimsons, and we felt this one in particular to be great for cold brew.
