Proposed Canon

Tea is a beverage Erfwordlers enjoy, particularly Royals. It's made by boiling tea leaves in a pot (or pouring the prepared tea in a serving pot), and serving while hot it in cups. It's typically accompanied with milk, sugar, lemon, and dainty cakes.[1] Drinking tea can be a very ceremonial activity, with a lot of unique customs and special tableware unique to a side. For example wine is drunk, but one does not drink tea, you 'take' tea.[2]

Tea has only been observed to be drunk in royal sides, and by non-royals who've lived in them. Primarily Jetstone, Transylvito, and Faq. The latter had hours-long ceremonies related to taking tea, and interestingly then princess Jillian Zamussels popped knowing it perfectly. Because of her warrior nature she had negative opinions of it, though other royals like Prince Ansom quite liked it.

Like wine, drinking tea is often a social activity, albeit the tone associated is more formal and high brow.


The tea ceremony is one of many ways royals can tell each other apart from "common" non-royals. It may serve as a means of discriminating socially.
