Tea is one of the Hosted Events
||Avalie gives Jiyel tea
Penelope gives wellin sweets
Jasper: Hosting a morning tea is one of the simplest and most fitting early events. It is especially appropriate for building friendship with others. Since it only requires things already easily available on the Isle, you can even host one at no cost. It is appropriate to invite a moderate number of people (i.e., 6)
You have the option of purchasing additional food with your available gold.
|Fancy tea blend from Jiyel||5|
|Fancy chocolates from Corval||5|
|Fancy tea cakes from Arland||10|
Jasper: Very well. Now that our supplies are taken care of, it's time to consider the guest list. Remember that people will accept and refuse invitations based on their feelings towards you and the type of event you plan.
You can invite 6 people to your event. If you chose to invite Ria or Sarya, Jasper will comment "Inviting your maid is a most... unusual choice, MC. And it will be noticed." Note that Blain, Falon, Jasper, Lyon, Ria, Sarya, Woodly, and Yvette will always reject an invitation, while you receive boosts if Gisette, Hamin, or Jarrod attend.

Narrator : "So (number of people) people have accepted your invitation and will join you for tea.."

P: "I hope you don't mind, but these are some of my favorites from home. I hoped we could share."

|Avalie||N:"Lady Avalie gives you a mysterious smile as she arrives, slightly late, and she hands you a small, wrapped package."
A:"I wasn't sure if you would be able to get your hands on anything quality so last minute."
N:"You open the package to see that she has given you a particular expensive blend of Jiyel tea leaves. You feel like it was more of a teasing challenge than a gift, but you and your guests will enjoy it the same either way."
N: "Your guests settle into the comfortable chairs, couches and settees as Jasper, Ria and Sayra hurry about to make sure everyone is comfortable, and has been served." N: "It takes only a few moments for judgment on your refreshments to have been reached."
