A cup of tea is a drink that boosts a players Construction level. This is helpful because it allows them to be able to build rooms rooms that have a level requirement greater than their current level.

There are three different strengths of tea depending on whether a clay or white porcelain or gold-trimmed porcelain cup was used when brewing it. With a Cooking level of 20, this item can be made in the kitchen of a player-owned house rewarding the player with 52 experience. Players can ask their servant to serve tea, and the servant will use a cup that corresponds with the best type of shelves built in the house. This type of tea cannot be put into a tea flask.

If the player leaves the house in any way, the tea will disappear from their inventory.

Milky tea

A bucket of milk may also be added to any strength of tea, but this only changes the image and the drink text and does not affect the stat boosting abilities.

Tea strengths

Tea made at a player-owned house can boost Construction by 1-3 levels depending on the shelves in the kitchen.

Making a cup of tea

Making a cup of tea requires level 20 cooking and gives the player 52 experience. The following constructs must be present in the kitchen: a stove, a larder, a shelf, and a sink.

  1. Remove a kettle, a teapot and one or more cups from the shelf.
  2. Remove one unit of tea leaves from the larder.
  3. Use the kettle on the sink to fill it with water.
  4. Use the full kettle of water on the range to bring it to a boil.
  5. Use the tea leaves on the teapot to fill the teapot.
  6. Remove the kettle from the range when the message "The kettle boils." is received.
  7. Use the hot kettle on the teapot with leaves to create four servings of tea. This is the only step that grants cooking experience.
  8. Use the pot of tea on a cup to pour a cup of tea.
