When Adagio Teas touted this one as the “champagne” of teas, I couldn’t help thinking of Christopher Walken’s SNL character who lured women into his apartment with offers of “champanye.” Watch for yourself on Hulu.

Despite Adagio’s label, I found this tea had an identity crisis. The dry leaf offered aromas of floral wulongs, but the liquid overpowered any aromas and delivered black tea briskness and puckeriness. Not wow-eee-wow-wow, but worthy of an 80.
