the butler drank it

Tastemaker platinum badge
created by: Christa Y
Alfred the butler is the fatherly force of constancy in Bruce Wayne’s life, and as such deserves a tributary blend of his own: earl grey lavender provides a well-groomed British accent, dark chocolate chip assures that the sweet shadowy secrets of Wayne Manor are kept below ground, and the whole is rounded out by warmly proper cream. (Oldskool Blend Note: The flavors here are very similar to a previous blend of mine called My Dear Watson, updated here with a dash of floral lavender in the mix.) There’s probably a reason that the general, non-billionaire, non-comic populace doesn’t have butlers. Aside from the hefty fee, your butler would know everything you did at night, offer you sage advice which you would hardly ever take, bandage your considerable wounds, help to repair your armored suits and mechanized vehicles, bring you tea when you’re feeling jaded and in need of therapy ... okay, okay, clearly *I* want an Alfred too.

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!
