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.

Materials

Procedure

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
  1. Dry tea leaf or coffee bean in a Wayerd pyramid
  2. CRUSH dried tea leaf/dried coffee IN MORTAR WITH PESTLE
  3. Put equal parts water and crushed tea leaf/ground coffee in jar
    1. Optional: Crush flavoring to juice or pulp, then add juice or pulp instead of the water to jar with the tea/coffee.
    2. Optional: Add honey instead of the water to jar with the tea/coffee.
  4. DROP STOVE
  5. PUT PEAT IN STOVE
  6. LIGHT PEAT IN STOVE WITH FLINT
  7. Get a 2nd piece of peat and PUT MY PEAT ON PEAT IN STOVE. This will create a fire.
    1. Tip: You can also use the abbreviated PUT MY PEAT IN STOVE
    • Continue to add peat by PUT PEAT IN STOVE until you have a good fire going, then CLOSE STOVE
  8. PUT JAR ON STOVE
  9. After you see steam rising from the jar, STIR JAR ON STOVE WITH MY STICK
    • Repeat stirring if necessary until you have tea or coffee.

Crush then Dry

  1. CRUSH tea leaf or coffee bean IN MORTAR WITH PESTLE
  2. Dry ground tea or ground coffee in a Wayerd pyramid
  3. Put equal parts water and dried tea/dried coffee in jar
    1. Optional: Crush flavoring to juice or pulp, then add juice or pulp instead of the water to jar with the tea/coffee.
    2. Optional: Add honey instead of the water to jar with the tea/coffee.
  4. DROP STOVE
  5. PUT PEAT IN STOVE
  6. LIGHT PEAT IN STOVE WITH FLINT
  7. Get a 2nd piece of peat and PUT MY PEAT ON PEAT IN STOVE. This will create a fire.
    1. Tip: You can also use the abbreviated PUT MY PEAT IN STOVE
    • Continue to add peat by PUT PEAT IN STOVE until you have a good fire going, then CLOSE STOVE
  8. PUT JAR ON STOVE
  9. After you see steam rising from the jar, STIR JAR ON STOVE WITH MY STICK
    • Repeat stirring if necessary until you have tea or coffee.


Brewing Notes

  • 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.
