Cradle of Filth could've gone the easy route and made an absinthe named after their 2004 track "Absinthe With Faust." Instead, Cradle of Filth went the non-alcoholic path and made their own brand of tea. The teas are called Dark Blood and Sweetest Maleficia, because of course they are.
"If anything this weird space of time known as ‘lockdown’ has taught us, is that literally everything can be mollified with a really good cup of tea. And having been provided with some fine tasting Satanic TEAs for the recording of the latest Cradle of Filth album (already on the boil and ready to pour later this year) from production company Pitch Black North, an idea was TEAsed into our collective skulls that a collaboration should be afoot.
"And thus it was. Two TEAs. One for the uplift, one for the wind-down.
"Both based on Cradle of Filth songs, these expertly crafted beverages are not only bursting with maleficent flavour, but they also swim abrim with genuine witchcraft, having been brewed under all the right stars.
"So, put the heavy kettle on, put some Heavy Metal on and start conversing with your inner TEAmons. Pitch Black North presents DARK BLOOD and SWEETEST MALEFICIA.
"Steeped in Filth."
