You can buy tea and coffee mixes inspired by your favourite geeky characters

We'll take 6 bags of Black Widow, please

As much as I love a standard cup of black tea or coffee, sometimes there’s nothing better than spicing things up a little. There are so many different blends of tea out there with different subtle flavours and on a cold day there’s no better treat that a cup of warm coffee with a sweet syrup mixed in. We can say different drinks have tastes inspired by different seasons – Starbucks capitalise on this with seasonal drinks like the Pumpkin Spice Latte – but what if their flavours were inspired by different characters?

That’s the idea behind Beastly Beverages. The store has a whole host of original coffee and tea mixes inspired by characters from TV shows, comic books, films, and videogames so you won’t struggle to find someone you love. The flavour mixes are incredibly clever and you genuinely get the sense that they would match their respective character well. For example, the Loki coffee is “dark and rich with energetic kick of peppermint and soothing dark chocolate” and the Morrigan from Dragon Age tea blend has a dark smoky, spicy flavour perfectly suited to the Witch of the Wilds.

The store has mixes inspired by characters from geeky favourites like The Avengers, Dragon Age, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Firefly and Star Trek. Each mix costs £10 plus £5 delivery and comes in a bag of 100g which features wonderful original art work of the characters, all of which is credited on the store’s page. If you can’t make up your mind, you can always buy a randomly selected batch of 4 flavours for £29.99 to get you started.

We don’t know about you, but we think we’d feel much more ready to face the day if our morning coffee had a sweet and spicy kick inspired by Black Widow.
