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.
