Back in September JARV IS… launched their own strain of tea and a ‘Beyond The Pale’ jigsaw puzzle.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with the people at Dragonfly to produce a bespoke tea blend to complement the ‘Beyond the Pale’ album,” Cocker said in a statement at the time.

“I always thought it would be a nice idea to create a tea to accompany our album, but Dragonfly have made that idea a reality. What message awaits you on the tag attached to the tea bag? Only one way to find out… Welcome to the Peppermint Jungle!”
