Anyway, you’ve got questions. And that’s fair enough, it’s not everyday a band of British music legends decide to create their own take on the nation’s favourite hot drink.
Is Monday Morning Tea the first ‘merch’ tea?
In a word, no!
Cast your mind back a year or three (to the year-that-shall-not-be-named). Jarvis Cocker was working on his solo project and with genius typical of the Pulp frontman, he landed on the idea that a celebratory tea would be just the thing.
With a clear vision in mind for a tea to reflect and complement his new album, Jarvis needed someone up to the job of making it.
Which is where we came in!
‘Welcome to the Peppermint Jungle’ was an intriguing, limited edition herbal infusion inspired by the lyrics of Beyond the Pale. Needless to say, it went down a storm (no teacup!) with Jarvis fans.
It was such a success that, when Pulp reformed for their This Is What We Do for An Encore tour, Pulp asked us to do it again.
So, Monday Morning Tea? This is what we do for an encore!
What kind of tea is Monday Morning Tea?
Pulp wanted an everyday black tea, perfect for Monday morning and every morning. Something that could take a splash of milk and give that mellow buzz of a good cuppa. Monday Morning Tea is just that: a full-bodied, single-origin black tea. Enjoy it with or without milk (Jarvis likes his with a splash) and a good album playing!
Where can I buy Pulp Tea?
Desperate to try it? While stocks last you can buy it here.
What about the Pulp Tea box?
The special edition Pulp lyric box contains 20 individually sealed string & tag tea bags. Each tea bag is adorned with a tea tag featuring Pulp lyrics selected by Jarvis Cocker. (NB, each box contains a random assortment of lyric tea tags).
What’s the verdict?
“Monday mornings can be hard. This could help: Pulp Tea!
In collaboration with @dragonflyteauk (who produced the JARV IS… Peppermint Jungle tea) we have come up with the perfect black tea to get you up & running on Monday, or any other day of the week, morning (or any other time of the day). It tastes so good you’ll probably want to drink it all day - & you can!” Jarvis Cocker
