Cup of tea detail
A Cup of tea is a refreshment which restores 200 to 375 life points, depending on constitution level, and it temporarily boosts Attack by 3. Consuming tea drains adrenaline, but its healing is not boosted by Expensive spices. It can be used to remove the effect of the aggression potion.

Players may purchase a cup of tea for 10 coins each at the tea stall south of the east entrance to Varrock. When a player drinks a cup of tea, they say the phrase, "Aaah, nothing like a nice cuppa tea!" and an empty cup remains in the player's inventory. A cup of tea can also be used on a tea flask in order to combine multiple cups.

Players may also steal or buy from tea stalls to obtain a cup of tea. A Thieving level of 5 is required to steal from tea stalls. There are some respawn points for this item south of the herb shop in Taverley and north of the tea stall in Varrock.

[FAQ] • [doc]


  • In Varrock, near the teaseller, before a hidden update, there was an item near his stall called, "Display tea". Players could not take the tea. This was removed in a hidden update.
  • In RuneScape Classic, you were allowed to telegrab the display tea unlike in RuneScape 2; it was tradeable. If dropped, the display tea could not be picked it up unless Telekinetic Grab was used. It was also used in scamming occasionally.
