Velvet Dusk or “Hua Xiang Xiao Zhong” is a modern twist on a classic black tea. Though traditionally smoked, Velvet Dusk is left unsmoked to emphasize the pure flavor of these high quality leaves. The unsmoked Velvet Dusk feels smooth and light in the mouth, but has a deep and complex flavor with notes of raisin and muscovado that will surely leave you wanting more.
