|Examine||A cup of Guthix rest.|
Guthix rest is a tea, but its function is similar to a potion, as each cup provides several doses. It is made during One Small Favour from a Clean harralander, two Clean guams, and a Clean marrentill. To make it, heat a bowl of water on a range. Use the bowl of hot water on an empty tea cup and add a harralander, two guams, and a marrentill, in any order. This makes a three-dose Guthix rest. Making Guthix rest gives a total of 59.5 Herblore experience. If the incorrect amount of herbs is added, ruined herb tea is obtained.
After One Small Favour is completed, the tea can still be made, however the combined cost of all the required herbs would be 445 coins on the Grand Exchange, making it far preferable to purchase there rather than waste time and gold making them yourself. However, since they rarely buy on the Grand Exchange, you may find that making them yourself is the better option. It still gives Herblore experience and has several useful effects. It reduces damage taken by poison by 10 lifepoints per dose, heals 200 life points per dose, restores 5% run energy and boosts the maximum life points by 50 at full health. A full four dose Tea restores a total of 800 LP with the possibility of boosting the player's lifepoints over their maximum level by 200.
When first released, there was a glitch that caused the tea to restore all of the player's health. The glitch was quickly fixed. However, many players were banned for abusing the glitch to gain an unfair advantage in PvP situations.
Attempting to make this tea by adding the herbs to the cup of hot water before speaking with Sanfew, even partially into the quest, will result in: "You have no idea what effect this would have."

This tea instantly restored 100% of your life points when a player drank Guthix rest tea. It was only supposed to boost the maximum life points if a player was at full health. This glitch was abused to win duels at the Duel Arena and to player kill without dying. This was fixed by Jagex shortly after discovery.
The glitched tea had the following effects:
