The Riddler has been pitching questions in the pursuit of evildoing since his first appearance in 1948, and as such is one of the most recognizable villains of the Gotham universe. (Missed opportunities, Mr. Nolan. Missed opportunities.) Whether going by his other moniker, Edward Nigma, or showing up throughout various media with bright green unitards, bowler hats, and/or purple accents in his wake, the Riddler is certainly one of the more, er, fashionably entertaining rogues of the city, always twisting up the general grey matter with puzzles, mysteries, and brain-teasers that take all of Batman’s “world’s greatest detective” credentials to solve. This energizingly flavorful blend of apple, peppermint, and a dash of warm, unpredictable ginger will have you asking -- and answering -- the not-quite-immortal riddle: “What is sweet and minty and lightly-gingered all over?”

This tea contains no caffeine | Steep at 212° for 5 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!
