Cup of tea detail

A Cup of tea is a refreshment which restores 200 to 375 life points, depending on your constitution level, and it temporarily boosts Attack by 3. The minimum Constitution level to receive the full amount of healing from this food is 15.

Enter your Constitution level name=skillstat_Constitution_level|type=int|value=1|range=1,99|size=4|sublist=calchealing

let(base,15) let(hp,skillstat_Constitution_level) if(hp < base){




} let(healing,"Cups of tea will heal " + heal + " life points at level "+hp+".")

Players may purchase a cup of tea for 10 coins each at the tea stall south of the east entrance to Varrock. When a player drinks a cup of tea, they say the phrase, "Aaah, nothing like a nice cuppa tea!" and an empty cup remains in the player's inventory. A cup of tea can also be used on a tea flask in order to combine multiple cups.

Players may also steal or buy from tea stalls to obtain a cup of tea. A Thieving level of 5 is required to steal from tea stalls. Stealing from Ithell workers in Prifddinas is also an option at Thieving level 92. There are some respawn points for this item south of the herb shop in Taverley and north of the tea stall in Varrock.

  • This is one of the only types of tea that cannot be used with a bucket of milk to make a milky version.
  • Nettle tea and POH tea has the empty option, but this standard tea does not.
  • Sir Galahad is known for handing cups of tea to travelers who give him the pleasure of their conversation. This is an easy Seers' Task.
  • Due to an update on 9 November 2009, swapping tea around with a full inventory no longer causes cups to be dropped.
  • On the 25 November 2010 a glitch occurred for the image of this item on the Grand Exchange that made it just show the frame of the Cup of tea.
  • In Varrock, near the teaseller, before a hidden update, there was an item near his stall called, "Display tea". Players could not take the tea. This was removed in a hidden update.
  • In RuneScape Classic, you were allowed to telegrab the display tea unlike in RuneScape 2; it was tradeable. If you dropped the display tea, you could not pick it up unless you used Telekinetic Grab. It was also used in scamming occasionally.
  • Ghasts cannot rot tea. This may be because a cup of tea is classed as a potion.
