As if Chris Pirillo of Lockergnome fame wasn't all over the Web enough, he now wants to be in your kettle. Pirillo has partnered with Might Leaf Tea Company to invent Geekalicious, a signature tea that bears his likeness. It's a genmaicha-like tea, and like most genmaicha, it has rice puffs that combine with the other natural tea flavors to give it a refreshing character.
How do I know so much about tea? How does Pirillo? Some are saying tea is the new coffee. I used to work in a coffee shop that was popular among the tea-elite. I can't speak for Pirillo, but with the Revision3 guys getting their own brews, it's like this geek tea thing is becoming a trend.
Geekalicious makes me wonder what other kids of things Pirillo will start licensing. If the tea is successful, will we see a breakfast cereal called Pirillo Puffs? Rice Chris Ps?
Where can I get some Cinnamon TechCrunch?*
We haven't tried the tea yet. But if you're into tea, you can try Geekalicious at Mighty Leaf for $9.95. So far there are no reviews, but maybe one of our readers can be the first.
