Born in Stockholm (Sweden), now live in Sapporo (Japan). Hold a Ph.D. in computer science and work with computers during the days, perform magic in a bar during the nights (and weekends, for kids). Also used to teach historical fencing back in Sweden.
When I was in Sweden in May, I visited a licorice and salmiakki specialty store. They had green tea with licorice. In Japan everyone likes green tea (you often get green tea at restaurants instead of water) but almost everyone hates licorice.
I bought a bag of this tea and recently started drinking it. It is actually very good! Even the packaging is clever and it comes with a clever system for keeping the rest of the tea dry.
