Cradle Of Filth are releasing their own brand of “satanic” teas – you can see the two new creations below.
According to Kerrang!, the Suffolk metal band said they came up with the concept of the teas whilst recording their upcoming album after they were “provided with some fine-tasting satanic teas” from a company called Pitch Black North.
After deciding to collaborate with the company on their own version of the teas, the group said the products were “tea-sed into our collective skulls that a collaboration should be afoot.”
They continued: “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.”
You can buy the teas here.
Steeped in Filth.

The two teas are based on Cradle Of Filth songs and are for different emotions, “one for uplift, one for the wind-down,” according to the group.
One of the teas, ‘Dark Blood’ is a “proper English black tea” whereas ‘Sweetest Malefica’ is a blackberry and vanilla flavoured tea.
In a statement, the group said: “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.”
Cradle Of Filth also posted a picture of Eilish in the custom metal shirt, writing: “Whatever you think of Billie Eilish, she’s got some seriously good taste in gothic-tinged music if a coat made from Type O Negative, Rob Zombie and Cradle artwork is anything to go by.”
Reviewing Eilish’s latest single, ‘My Future’, NME said: “this is a perfect piece of much-needed positive pop to put at the centre of your self-care routine ASAP.”
