knight of darkness

Tastemaker platinum badge
created by: Christa Y
Batman, the perpetual Caped Crusader, has been fluttering, brooding, and generally taking names for justice around Gotham City since 1939. (You have to admit, Our Man Bruce is in excellent fighting shape for a seventysomething.) This dark chocolate-and-blueberry tea pays tribute to the Dark Knight in both his original campy-sugary blue *and* his darker, postmodern, film noir-with-cocoa-nibs interpretation, with a dash of cream to smooth out the character evolution of flavors.

The Gotham Cup is proud to serve a hot cup of justice for the Batman fan in all of us. Whether you’re a jaded-hero devotee or a defeat-and-sometimes-pity-the-looney-villain enthusiast, this fandom offers plenty of layered character brews to suit all bat-tastes. On a more personal note, while I cannot name the precise day, nor the hour, when I realized that I was kind of a big semi-secretive Batgeek, I still bear an unflagging enthusiasm for the beloved animated series of my childhood, as well as incredibly silly reruns of the 1960s television classic, the Golden and Silver Age comics (a.k.a. our extremely campy comic grandfathers), and various postmodern Bat-iterations as well, from graphic novels to 20th century films to the 21st century Nolanverse to various all-versions-welcome video games. Long live Gotham City, and long live tea!
