Have you ever sat down to enjoy a nice, warm, relaxing cup of chamomile tea before bed only to feel like something is missing? Could it be a splash of milk? A pinch sugar? A heaping scoop of Satanism? Move over, British people and old ladies, the classic cuppa has just gotten a bit more goth, thanks to the proudly hardcore, sustainably-sourced, small batch loose leaf tea company, Pitch Black North.
... very goth tea parties ...
... Pitch Black North aims to share its unique brand of what Alvernaz describes as "sketchy, sexy vampire vibes." Although a bit unconventional, this approach seems to be gaining traction, selling like crazy on the tea company's website and garnering a few notable fans, including the lead singer of English extreme metal band, Cradle of Filth, who collaborated with the tea company earlier this year.
"It was an original avenue for a band to pursue, and on top of all that, being avid tea drinkers, we were totally enamored with the association and the ready supply," Dani Filth said to The New York Times of their partnership with Pitch Black North. "After a long night of bloodletting and virgin defilement, what better way to perk up one's morning (your dusk) than a really good brew?" I, for one, can't think of a better way to start my day.
