==Making energy tea==
+
Energy tea is made from [[ginger]], [[borage]] and [[coffee|ground coffee]].  It must be [[brew|brewed]] by a [[witch]] in order to be effective.
+
 
+
The potency of energy tea is proportional to the [[magic.methods.physical.brewing|brewing]] bonus of the witch who brewed it; a more potent energy tea restores more GP.
+
 
+
==Effects==
+
Upon drinking, energy tea has three immediate effects:
+
*It instantly restores an amount of GP proportional to the brewer's [[magic.methods.physical.brewing|brewing]] bonus.
+
*It raises the drinker's maximum GP by an amount proportional to the brewer's [[magic.methods.physical.brewing|brewing]] bonus.
+
*It may [[poison]] the drinker.
+
 
+
Typical amounts for both GP effects are in the range 100 - 200 GP.
+
Witches often counteract the [[poison]] effect by mixing energy tea with [[antivenom]].
+
 
+
The maximum GP boost lasts for a period of time proportional to the brewer's [[magic.methods.physical.brewing|brewing]] bonus - typically around 3 - 5 minutes.
+
 
+
Once the boost wears off, the drinker will immediately lose an amount of GP equal to that which they initially gained.
+
Additionally, there is a chance at this point that the drinker will also suffer a one point penalty to their [[intelligence]] stat, which will last for 10 - 20 minutes.
+
 
+
The drinker's GP cannot be brought below zero as a result of the GP drain (it is reduced to zero instead), however, draining to zero GP increases the chance that the above stat drain will occur.
