From Adagio Teas

Ace is amazing. She’s street-smart and tough, and beneath that fearless exterior lies a kind and loyal heart. Rich, slightly earthy hazelnut is met with complex caramel and lively ceylon tea, while gunpowder green lingers in the background like a canister of nitro-9 hidden at the bottom of Ace’s rucksack. Equal parts bravado, youthful enthusiasm, and warm loyalty. And, boooooooom!

I wish I was as cool as Ace McShane. She gets stuff done. I accidentally took a nap this afternoon when I fell asleep by mistake in the middle of a job application form. Blerg. That would never have happene to Ace McShane. She’s fierce.

Aaaaaand, BOOOOOOOOOOOOM! The scent of Ace blend is like an explosive blast of sweet, nutty caramel, with a trace of smoky green lurking in the background, and a surprisingly buttery, lingering finish. It’s a bit of a flavour bomb when brewed, too. in spite of this, though, it still never fails to taste like tea, accented by caramel, with rich hazelnut following at the end. I think it’s the gunpowder that mainly serves to keep the sweet flavours in the tea from veering into cloying territory and lend a fascinating complexity. Seriously, I’m fascinated by this tea: it’s dark and bright, rich and sweet. It’s fierce, and absolutely delicious.

I have watched DW forever and I had no idea that Ace’s last name was McShane!!! I’m glad that it has an explosive taste. That certainly describes her well! Yeah for nitro9! Fav quotes …It’s just… I don’t feel properly dressed without a couple of cans of nitro 9… Do you feel like arguing with a can of deodorant that registers nine on the Richter scale?

Heck yeah! I don’t think her last name comes up that often. Maybe once? It definitely comes up more in the audios. Aww, I love Ace.
