This morning, League of Legends announced that Piltover’s Finest Tea will be available soon, allowing players to merge their love for League of Legends into a real-life cuppa’ hot, steamy tea (or maybe iced, if you preferred). But today is April 1st, and Riot Games is known for playing a joke or two on this day of trickery!
League of Legends, commonly referred to as LoL, is a popular multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game developed and published by Riot Games. It was released in 2009 and has since grown to become one of the most popular and successful online games in the world, with a huge player base and an active esports scene.
The blue and gold-decorated metal tin shared by the LoL UK/IE/Nordics Twitter account contains Xaoland Leaves and Honeyfruit. The tin’s description reads, “Piltover’s Finest Tea sources all of its ingredients from each of the four corners of Runeterra, from the farthest reaches of Ionia and the Shadow Isles, to the cliffs of Palclyff to the canyons & depths of Zaun. Brought to you by the services of Piarre Yaeshiff ensuring that you receive the freshest produce within a fortnight of it being packaged.
The announcement on Twitter described, “Honeyfruit’s sweet taste mixed with Xaolan leaves is sure to offer a satisfying taste for both tea lovers and noobs.” They hope that the tea will be, “More than just great taste, Piltover’s Finest Tea’s clever combination of ingredients aims to soothe the mind and calm the nerves.”
April Fools’ Day, also known as All Fools’ Day, is a day of pranks and practical jokes. It is celebrated annually on the 1st of April, and people around the world engage in harmless pranks, hoaxes, and jokes. While the origin of the holiday is unclear, April Fools’ Day has been celebrated for centuries and is a popular tradition in many cultures.
The origins of April Fools’ Day are uncertain, but it is believed to have originated in Europe in the Middle Ages. Some historians believe that it started as a celebration of the spring equinox, when people would play tricks on one another to welcome the new season. Others believe that it was originally a celebration of the renewal of life, as the winter months ended and the earth came back to life.
Regardless of its origins, April Fools’ Day has become a beloved holiday around the world. People celebrate by playing pranks on each other, telling jokes, and engaging in other forms of lighthearted humor. Some of the most common pranks include pretending to be someone else, making fake announcements, and creating elaborate hoaxes.
We’re pretty sure this is just one of Riot Games’ spirited April Fools’ jokes, even if it would have made a fun gift to give to your favorite LoL fan!
