Red Gold Luo is a high-grade black tea made in Yunnan Province in the style of Jiangsu Province's Green Bi Luo Chun. The name means "snail spring" — "spring" because this tea is harvested in the spring and "snail" because the two leaves and down-covered tips are carefully rolled into tight spirals that slowly unfurl to release more flavor during steeping. The spirals are formed in a heated wok, using three different hand movements. This tea is a master at producing multiple infusions: you can easily get eight infusions from one serving of this tea. Red gold Luo is a great reintroduction to loose black tea. Whether you are looking for an alternative to coffee or are just getting started with loose leaf and are ready to ditch your tea bags, Red Gold Luo is a wonderful choice for an everyday tea.
