Fire Emblem Three Houses Tea Guide - Get a Perfect Tea Party With Edelgard, Dorothea, and More Characters

Here's our complete Fire Emblem Three Houses tea guide, walking you through how to hold the perfect tea party in Three Houses.

You can host a special tea party in Fire Emblem Three Houses with almost any character in the Monastery, which provides you with an opportunity to increase your friendship with them. In our Fire Emblem Three Houses tea guide, we'll be taking you through everything you need to do in order to get the perfect tea party with a host of characters, including Edelgard, Dorothea, Petra, Bernadetta, and more.

Fire Emblem Three Houses Tea Guide

In Fire Emblem Three Houses, one activity available to you while you're exploring the Monastery in a free roam period is tea time. To undertake this activity, you need to approach a character and speak to them. Then select the 'invite to tea' option, and if they haven't got much going on, they'll accept the invite and a Three Houses tea party is about to begin.

Now you'll be placed in a one-on-one scenario with them. Firstly, you need to choose a blend of tea to present them with, based on the tea leaves you've acquired so far playing Fire Emblem Three Houses. There aren't really any wrong answers here, as every character in the game will accept any tea you present them with. Basically, the better quality tea leaves, the better the conversation.

Which leads us to the next part of a tea party. After presenting the character with tea, you'll engage in three bouts of conversation options with them. For each of these three instances, you'll be presented with three conversation topics on screen, and asked to select one before the timer in the top right corner runs out.

The difficulty here is knowing which dialogue option to select. It's your job to decide what topics of conversation best suit the character that you've invited to tea. For example, Raphael from the Golden Deer house is always keen to talk about weight lifting and training, but he won't be so enthused by topics like studying.

After the three instances of choosing a topic to talk about, you'll get a rating based on your performance. Ratings of 'nice tea time' or 'perfect tea time' will cause the motivation levels of the character you invited to rise, as well as giving a boost to their support level with you. Anything less than this, however, will result in no bonus for them.

Fire Emblem Three Houses Tea Party Answers

Considering what a minefield choosing topics of conversation can be, we can lend a helping hand. Below, we've rounded up all the characters we've invited to a tea party so far in Fire Emblem Three Houses, to present you with a list of all the correct Fire Emblem tea party answers.

CharacterTea Party Correct Answers

AsheShareable snacks, a place you'd like to visit

MarianneMonastery rules, overcoming weaknesses, the existence of Crests
PetraSwimming in the ocean, someone you look up to
ShamirEquipment upkeep, reliable allies,
SylvainFavorite sweets, potential training partners, first crushes

But it's not over for your tea party in Fire Emblem Three Houses once you've picked three conversation topics. If you've picked the best three conversation options available, the character you're having a tea party with will give you a small follow up dialogue line.

Pay close attention to this final line of dialogue. After this, you'll need to choose the appropriate response to what they've just said. You could be presented with options to either 'laugh,' 'nod,' or 'encourage' here, and it's your job to match the appropriate response to what the character has just said.

For example, if Bernadetta has said something along the lines of coming out of her shell more (as she often does), then you should try and pick an option to 'encourage' or 'commend' her for trying. Do this, and you'll have scored yourself a 'Perfect' rating on your tea party, which hugely increases not only your support rank with the character you're sharing tea with, but also Byleth's Charm rating.

How to Unlock Tea Time in Fire Emblem Three Houses

Unlike the other two activities listed on this page, tea time isn't available to be unlocked until the second full month of Fire Emblem Three Houses. When you're in the month of Blue Sea Moon, explore the Monastery at the first opportunity.

You'll now have a quest marker over in the stables, which will be for Ferdinand. Approach and talk to Ferdinand, and he'll task you with finding and someone who is a big fan of tea, and giving them the fancy tea set he's just provided you with.

Now bring up your map by pressing R. You'll now be able to see who the character is that the game wants you to deliver the tea set to. We believe this changes depending on which house you're allied to, but it's worth noting that Lorenz was our designated character to deliver the tea set to, while we were in the Black Eagles house.

Once you've delivered the tea set to Lorenz or another character as a gift, you'll have immediately completed the quest from Ferdinand. At this point, you've successfully unlocked tea time as an activity around the Monastery. You can now have a lovely Tea Party with characters in Fire Emblem Three Houses.

Fire Emblem Three Houses Tea Leaves

Well it wouldn't be a tea party without any tea. Tea leaves don't come automatically to you in Fire Emblem Three Houses, and you're instead going to have to accumulate tea leaves that you can then offer to other characters during tea time. You can obtain new tea leaves from the Eastern Merchant or the Western Merchant in the market area of the Monastery. Just below, we've compiled a list of all the tea leaves they sell, including star rating out of five, and price.

  • Sweet Apple Blend - Two stars, costs 500 G.
  • Albinean Bery Blend - Two stars, 500 G.
  • Southern Fruit Blend - Two Stars, 500 G.
  • Mint Leaves - Two stars, 500 G.
