Jarv Is...

You’re no one this year if your band hasn’t put out a jigsaw or some tea as merch. Thankfully – and I know a lot of you were worried about this – Jarvis Cocker has finally put out both. You can now sip on a tea specially blended to complement his Jarv Is… project’s new album ‘Beyond The Pale’, while slotting together pieces of a 1000 piece jigsaw based on its artwork.

The peppermint tea, called Peppermint Jungle, was created by Berkshire tea company Dragonfly Tea. Of it, Cocker says: “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. I always thought it would be a nice idea – but they 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!”

Only one way? What if I squint at the picture here? “Mum’s pregnant with Jarv?” No, maybe you will have to buy a box of the tea to find out. And why wouldn’t you? Peppermint tea is lovely, particularly after a big meal. It’s also quite reasonably priced at £3 a box. Delightful.

You can buy it right here. Unfortunately, that jigsaw I mentioned is sold out. You’ll just have to do your Radiohead one again.
