The massive roster of characters at the Garreg Mach Monastery has three different houses and members from each house have their tastes. You can’t just serve them any cup of tea. Each member has a different taste for tea and expects a different conversation every time. For some amazing tips and tricks, check out the Fire Emblem Three Hopes Tips and Tricks Guide.
It’s not as simple as you think, the player must have a good conversation that matches their guests’ interests and serve them the most perfect cup of tea that matches their preference. Survival in Fire Emblem Three Houses can become easier with the Tea Guide we have written for you.
How To Unlock Tea Party in Fire Emblem Three Houses
The player can unlock tea time in Fire Emblem Three Houses after the second month also known as Blue Sea Moon. There’s a quest in the monastery that you have to explore if you want to unlock tea time.
You will have to find Ferdinand who is already looking for a big fan of tea. You’ll find such a person in the stables area at the monastery. Ferdinand will give you a quest “tea for Two”. He will also give you an Elegant Tea Set. You must find a character who deserves this Elegant Tea Set in the game.
You have to hand over the Elegant Tea Set to Lorenz in Fire Emblem Three Houses. Lorenz can be found at the fishing pond or you can check the map of the game by clicking R which will open up the character locations for you.
After giving Lorenz the Elegant Tea Set, you have completed the quest and unlocked the Tea Time during the monastery downtime.
Inviting Friends To Tea Party
After unlocking the Tea Party, you have to invite friends over to your tea point but it’s not as simple as you think. Inviting friends to your Tea Party will cost you an action point every time. You have to decide wisely with whom you want to have your Tea Party.
Just move to the character you want to invite to the Tea Party and click on the “invite to tea” option on the menu list. You must have a good bond with the character you are inviting to your Tea Party, otherwise, you won’t be able to invite them.
This means you can’t invite characters for your Tea Party at the start of the game. Rather; you have to be at a specific level in the game to invite those characters. You can also strengthen your bond with the characters by buying them gifts. You can buy these gifts from merchants who are visiting the monastery.
You can also select good responses to the dialogue with the characters or find them the lost items that are scattered across the map. All these ways will prove to be extremely beneficial for you while inviting characters to have tea with you at your Tea Party.
How Tea Time Works
After inviting the characters for tea, Byleth and the character guests will sit at the table where Byleth will have to serve tea. Each guest on the table has their likes and dislikes regarding different teas. All teas in the inventory can be served but you Byleth have to make sure to serve tea according to each guest’s preference.
Serving each guest their favorite tea will make them respond in a better way and then after the tea has been served, the player must select a conversation topic from three topics. Always make sure that you select a topic that interests the guest because they will respond in a positive way.
Getting three positive responses will also help the player have an optional 4th response for the Perfect Tea Time and both player and the guest will gain +1 CHA stat for the efforts they put in. Moreover picking up their favorite tea will also allow you to only get two conversation topics correct to get a bonus.
If a guest finds no interest in the topic, they might be disappointed and respond negatively. Selecting three topics that interest the guests will help in extending tea time.
After these three favorable topics, the guest will comment and Byleth must respond accordingly. Having a positive response from Byleth will help you score a Perfect Tea Time. A few positive responses will also boost up the support between Byleth and the guest.
More positive responses will prolong your Tea Time which is beneficial for you but if there are mistakes in responding from Byleth, the Tea Party will end soon. Scoring the Perfect Tea Time reward, there will be a menu that has all the gift options that can be presented to the guest by Byleth.
The player can also observe the guest, helping him to understand the guest properly and choose the most perfect gift for the guest. The guest will also respond to the player’s observation but it won’t affect your gameplay at all.
A Perfect Tea Party is important for the player, as well as the guest as each one of them, will be granted a permanent Charms boost. Not completing the Perfect Tea Time before time skip will lock the Tea for Two Quest till Chapter 13. Fire Emblem Three Houses with its perfect Tea Guide will indeed help you score a few bonuses.
Choosing Perfect Tea
Choosing your guest’s favorite tea can help you score a small bonus. The hard part is that there are many different types of teas in Fire Emblem Three Houses but this Tea Guide will help you find the perfect tea for each guest.
Each tea has different ingredients and they taste different. Some teas are made according to the nobles’ preferences while others are made for the commoners. Every company has likes and dislikes for assorted tea flavors.
Some guests enjoy sweet flavors like Ashe, Mercedes, and Lindhart while others like flavors such as Crescent-Moon Tea and Lavender Blend. Each tea has specific star ratings and sharing any tea with your friend will increase the bondage between you both.
Sharing any tea flavor will raise the bond between players and guests but choosing their favorite tea will allow the friendship to grow faster.
Most flavors can be found in the Amiibbo Garden and some other places at the monastery. You can look for these special spots on the game map or even purchase them from merchants roaming at the entrance of the monastery.

Choosing the Perfect Conversation Topic
You don’t only have to offer the perfect cup of tea to your guests, rather; you need to have a good conversation too. Choose the topic according to your unit’s preference because messing up with the topic will make them leave early.
Choosing the right conversation topic will also improve the bond between you and your guests. The player will get three chances to have a dialogue with the unit and choose a topic of discussion according to the likes and dislikes of the guests.
Choosing two topics that the guest doesn’t like will pop up a note that says “you don’t have much to talk about” and the tea time will automatically end. Every character has different likes and dislikes.
You have to see the personality of the character and talk to them according to that. It’s obvious that characters like Leonie, who is a dedicated knight, would like topics related to war rather than topics on love. The same goes for Dimitri, a character dedicated to military service who will talk about military equipment rather than useless gossip.
There are a few questions and answers in your Tea Time too and you must be able to answer each question the guest asks.
