Awesome mod! I apologize for the length of this in advance, but I love the way you thought to circumvent lvling alchemy. Not to mention I love tea! It's probably a bit impractical to carry bowls into combat, but thats not your oversight as much as something thats already kinda odd about the game. (epicly overpowered soup, spilled on your back with the first swing? How about some elsweyr fondue steaming hot in your crotch?) I look forward to this, and I must ask if this would interact with the frostfall mod, giving warmth for every tea you drink? I'm considering installing that, too, and enjoying the challenge of hunting down new ingredients to make all of your delicious drinks!

Perhaps you could add the option to make tintures too? it's just a matter of adding alcohol to the herbs and making a concentrated, short bonus. or ferment the tea with something to dilute the effects but make it last 8 hours instead of 4? just brainstorming....I wish i had the knowhow to make a full tea station and brewing stand for these.......probably in one with a perculator and still, pestil n mortar, and some canisters like what you would see in Teavana, except more nordic, i guess? The 3 catagories would be different tabs, like with enchanting how you have the different catagories to access your soul gems, items and enchantments.

hell, there might even be some purpose in brewing having a chance to invert the product, making a poison that you can throw for a splash effect, as opposed to weapon coatings? (i would look at the throwing weapons: death from afar mod for inspiration to that point)

The ideas for this mod are limitless, and yes i'm rambling, but i really like the concepts at work here. There's precident in traditional chinese medicine here, amidst many others, which are the basis for the whole potion system. I think the ball was dropped mostly, perhaps because their brainstorming took too much of an alopathic line towards the medicine of skyrim, or too rooted in the classic (a la DnD) fantasy concept of potions and poisons, or perhaps they just didnt have time to work out a concept of akaviri medicine in teas, tintures, brews and salves.

(perhaps adding bone dust/some kind of salt or any combination therein to a liquid would make it into a salve (same model as bone dust w/ a recolor?) instead of brewing, or as another purpose.....as in utilizing the rarer salts to ampllify the durration of tintures. It would fit more into real concept as the tinture acts as a solvent to the salts, which bind to the active compounds aiding in absorption in ways that simply adding alcohol to your skin wont.

There's also a thought of a treated garment, either adding one of the products to a linen wrap and using a new equipment slot (like how people added backpacks without it taking up other equipment) or adding it to clothing like an enchantment?

I'm going to shut up here. Use anything i just said or ignore it all. I'm not interested in gaining credit or anything. If you wanna slap my name on something derived from this, i'll be touched, but I like to see things like this, with all their promise, and the people who have just as much potential as the works they create, grow an prosper.

a glow shroom tea made with glowshrooms, and glow dust that makes the ability of catseye for 720 seconds and the tea glows cyan.

Denouement Nov 13 @ 4:53pm

cool mod man teas pretty good
cmeveland Oct 31 @ 1:36pm 
TEA!!! I am thrilled that there are so many options. I would also like to see Milk Thistle teas w/ a health restore and resist poison effect and Amanita mushroom teas with a berserker and maybe 30% or higher archery increase effect. If you should feel so inclined. I have to learn how to create my own mods :) Great work and thanks.

Tea! I live for tea! I'm an never without it. I don't see the specs. Is it compatible with just the vanilla game or do we need certain expansions?
vollrathbn Sep 26 @ 5:52pm 
I love this one - the only thing that would make it better would be if it was tied into the alchemy skilltree somehow.
hnc10 Sep 21 @ 6:06pm 
I know I'm a bit late to the party on this one, but have you noticed that skyUI considers these teas foods (rather than drinks)? It drives me nuts. The only reason is that they use the "drink" sound effect rather than the "potion use" sound effect (strange, yes, but that's how they check it), so it would be a really easy fix, if you wanted to do a compatibility verson. Or I could do one if you didn't mind. Otherwise I really love this mod.

(CSA)NuclearTolerance Jun 19 @ 6:15pm

Sindarinbabee Jan 30 @ 9:26pm 
Ever think of making taproot tea?
Thadian Jan 25 @ 10:00am 
I find this mod balanced, and this is a mod I greatly enjoy. I wish there were a food mod that took your approach.

Thenameiuse Jan 7 @ 4:18pm 
Could you do a mod like this, but make it with coffee instead? I'm more of a coffee drinker.

Add Canis Root Tea for Dragonborn

Brilliant - love this mod! Cooking has suddenly become interesting again just as I was getting slightly bored with it. Love the names and the various effects too! Fabulous idea!!!! :-)

hey its been a long time since ive been on this page, but i just came across a shocker in solstheim... i was randomly attacked by a kajiit with no name other than his species, and when i looted his body i discovered he was carrying a TON of tea... i mean like he was carrying so much he could have been a tea merchent or something... and even more surprizing was that the normal kajiit tea was one of the ones he wasnt actually carrying any of... just thought i'd let you know since this hasnt seen any attention in a while... also, obviously my name isn't Ekala The Glaceon anymore... idk if you update names on here or if you just leave them as they were at the time, but yeah. anyways see ya around. im still loving this mod.

Battle tea? Don't see it on any list above.

idea: Winterhold Snowberry Tea-fortifies alchemy and enchanting

This is an awesome mod! Very helpful, very useful - especially if you're a vampire in need of an extended health boost during daylight hours - I highly recommend this to everyone!

Thank you so much, GustavL, for making this; I use it all the time. <3 <3 <3
Captain Krossix Sep 8, 2013 @ 9:27am 
Yes, quite lovely indeed, mate. Anybody in for some tea?
forgotten.grove Aug 26, 2013 @ 10:59am 
this is lovely; gives me another excuse to go foraging!

@death_punk2k: As it says in the description this mod is finished and I am not accepting any more suggestions. I am glad you like the mod though.
Victoryguard Aug 24, 2013 @ 11:13pm 
I think I can come up with a recipie, programming isn't my speciality but, Ingun is something of a muse when it comes to wicked use of herbs...
GustavL  [author] Aug 10, 2013 @ 12:54am 
@AD49613: That's alright; less work for me. If you have them as .obj it is usually a simple matter of converting them to .nif with nifskope but I guess you tried everything already.
AD49613 Aug 9, 2013 @ 11:04am 
I can not make the models in the correct format, probably should have done more research on importing the models. I will not be able to use the models.
GustavL  [author] Aug 1, 2013 @ 4:05am 
@AD49613: Oh, and UV-maps if you have them!
GustavL  [author] Aug 1, 2013 @ 4:04am 
@AD49613: That's really cool! I hadn't really planned on updating this mod anymore, but depending on how awesome your meshes are I just might. Upload the .nif:s somewhere and I'll have a look.
AD49613 Jul 31, 2013 @ 10:52pm 
I made an amateur draft of a tea model I thought could become an improvement. I was only going to use it for myself since the models seemed too bowl-ish for me but you can use it if you're interested.
