It is possible to brew your own coffee or tea from foraged tea leaves or coffee beans, even adding your own flavoring. This is a legacy system, and is expected to one day become part of the new Cooking discipline under Alchemy.
- Tea leaf or coffee bean.
- Wayerd pyramid
- Mortar and pestle
- Water or honey
- Large jar
- Portable stove
- Peat or other burnable material such as charcoal, pig root, etc.
- Flint and a metal blade such as a carving knife
- Mixing stick
Oramiwes original procedure for the brewing process is described at [Oramiwe's Art of Tea].
Both of the following process will offer up the same resulting tea or coffee. Each tea leaf or coffee bean needs to be dried and crushed, but so long as both are accomplished, the order does not matter.
Before you begin:
- FORAGE TEA LEAF or COFFEE BEAN and any flavoring ingredients (e.g. blueberries)
- Optional: COMBINE LEAF/BEAN/<FLAVORING INGREDIENTS> to create larger volume pieces. They can also be combined after drying or crushing as well. This may increase processing time slightly (longer to dry or more crushing needed) but will not change the item produced and will save your item count if brewing in large batches.
|Dry then Crush
Crush then Dry
- Each time the jar lets off steam, one part of water is consumed. It's suggested to add two more parts water than tea to account for this (so 3 parts added for each 1 part called for in the recipe), and wait for them to steam off before mixing. You can COUNT WATER IN JAR ON STOVE (as well as the tea leaf) to see how many parts are left.
- On some of the flavoring fruits, when you forage them and crush you will end up with only pulp because they have less than 4 parts (COUNT to check the parts available). Forage up multiple items and COMBINE them prior to crushing to end up with juice if you'd prefer to work with that.
- When using flavoring, substitute flavoring for water (e.g. blueberry juice for blueberry tea or strawberry pulp for strawberry tea).
- When using flavoring, do not expect steam; simply stir your jar/kettle after about a minute on the stove, and it will become tea. Additionally, since there is no steam-off, there is no need to add extra water. A one-to-one ration of tea to pulp/juice still creates tea.
- Foraged sticks/branches/logs do not fit in the portable stoves since the Shaping and Lumberjacking updates.
- Any "stick" will work for stirring. This includes foraged sticks or even your parry stick if you want to save on inventory.
- Similar legacy alchemy tools, such as a glass rod, will also work.
