It’s the first day back at work after a four-day long weekend for us here at Player Attack, and a cup of tea sounds lovely. This very limited edition collaboration between Bandai Namco and Yorkshire Tea actually sounds like the perfect pick-me-up – a “proper brew” of Dark Souls Tea.
No, it’s not a joke or a clever Photoshop. That is a one-of-a-kind box produced by Yorkshire Tea to tie in with the upcoming release of Dark Souls III later this month.
After chatting with Namco Bandai, tea house Taylors of Harrogate believes that each of these 80 cups of “beautiful and wonderful Yorkshire tea” should be savoured by a fan of the Dark Souls series and support a charity at the same time. So the one-off box is being auctioned! Sold to the highest bidder, with proceeds going to SpecialEffect, a charity that helps young people with physical disabilities rediscover the world of video games.
So far, the auction sits at £230.00, with one day and 12 hours left.
If you’re a tea lover (and a Dark Souls fan) who doesn’t live in the UK, don’t fret: You can still bid on this tasty brew from outside Great Britain – it can be sent to anywhere in Europe, the US, Canada or Australia.
Think about it: Sitting back, getting prepared for a challenge and sipping on the perfect cuppa… praise the sun!
