All right, last note of Geek Pride Day…gotta go out with a bang!

Appearance and Personality: Sweet, fragrant, delicious, forgiving

Background: While seemingly carefree on the outside, Almond Biscotti is, in fact, haunted by…A MYSTERIOUS, TRAGIC PAST. Almond Biscotti is in fact the half-elf, half-unicorn, half-dragon, half-vampire, half-mermaid, half-ent (why not?) child of Gandalf and Anita Blake (that’s right, it’s three separate people!). Sent forward, or possibly back, in time, it has joined the X-men in the hopes of finding clues about it’s unknown parentage. It also went to Hogwarts when it was young, interspersed with trips to Narnia. Also, it’s an Aes Sedai. And a member of the Bene Gesserit. It’s SEEN THINGS you people wouldn’t believe! Worlds resting atop elephents themselves standing on a giant ass turtle! Travels through time and space in a police box! Really unpleasant lepers! Series that go on for way too long and I no longer remember what happened in them! And you just want to DRINK IT?

Well yes, because it is gosh darn tasty :D

And what a bang! I laughed, I cried! I couldn’t believe I even remembered what the Bene Gesserit is, it’s been so long since I read Dune. So, it sounds like this tea is all things to all people — and with a charisma score like that, I must try it.

I always try to keep this tea in constant supply at home. Yum!

I haven’t tried any of the other almond teas that are really popular here, so I have no basis of comparison, but yeah it’s really good.

Profile

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
