Poison Ivy, a.k.a. Dr. Pamela Isly, is a botanically-obsessed villain who has always put plants first, and citizens of Gotham … well, very far from first. Insofar, Ivy’s filmed interpretations haven’t been given much credible weight -- thanks for the terrible memories, Mr. Schumacher -- but for fans of both the comics and the animated series, Ivy remains an interesting character, seemingly unable to cope with the realities of a more-peopled world and instead focusing on things she can grow, control, and use. Her tea is appropriately botanical: sharply sweet hibiscus, scarlet-red wild strawberry, and a dash of greenhouse-grown mango, with a few henchman (henchplant?) rose petals naturally finding their way into the mix.

This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 4 minutes.

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!
