This is a mini-game available after clearing the “Tea for Two” quest from Chapter 4 (7th month).
While exploring the monastery, when you speak to characters from your own house or other characters with a C or higher support rank, there will be an option to invite them for a tea party. Inviting a character costs 1 activity point. Also, when the calendar reaches a character’s birthday, you can host a tea party without spending activity points.
Characters You Can Invite
Note: Similar to the Owl Feather, every character likes the Hresvelg Blend and Leicester Cortania.

Tea Party Etiquette
If the character accepts the invitation, the tea party will begin immediately. First, you must select a type of tea. You can find tea as random items throughout the monastery or purchase them from the Eastern Merchant in the market (when available). Any tea will suffice, but if you pick a tea they like, it’ll make things easier.
Next, you’ll have three chances to “talk” to your partner. Each time you talk, there will be three topics to choose from and a 15 second timer. At least one of these topics will be one they’re interested in. If you choose the correct topic, you will gain support points. Meanwhile, if you choose wrong, you won’t gain (or lose) anything.
Furthermore, if you choose correctly three times, the character will make one final comment. You’ll have 15 seconds again to pick one of three responses. Choose the correct response and you will proceed to “extra time”. Otherwise, the tea party will come to an end.
If you offered a tea that the character liked, the conditions are a bit more relaxed:
- You only need to choose two correct topics to reach the final comment.
- If you picked all of the correct topics, you are allowed to fail the final comment.
Extra Time and Afterwards
During “extra time” you can observe your partner up close. They have two different responses (doubled if you share an A support) depending on if you zoom in near their head or near their, er, body. You can also give them a gift, which works the same as normal.
Once you’re finished, you’ll gain increased support points. You may also gain +1 Charm for the protagonist and/or your partner.
