Effects

  • Upon drinking, energy tea has three immediate effects:
    • It instantly restores an amount of GP proportional to the brewer's brewing bonus.
    • It raises the drinker's maximum GP by an amount proportional to the brewer's 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 brewing bonus - typically between 3 and 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.

Ethel Applebaum says: A potion with borage and ginger makes for a very refreshing tea...  I think it was tea, at any rate.  I forget.
