The Flow of the Tea Party
During a tea party, you have three chances to speak up. Every time you choose the correct answer, the support boost will increase. If you commit two mistakes, your guest will lose interest and the party will end. Choose your topics carefully to keep your guest entertained.
Unlocking the Fourth Topic
If you made all three topic choices correctly, you will earn an additional chance to continue your conversation with a fourth topic. As mentioned above, you need to use your best judgment to appeal to your guest.
Finishing a Tea Party
Regardless of the outcome, the tea party will eventually end and both you and your guest will earn support boost and charm. The number of points you earn will depend on your performance during the tea party proper.
Tea Party Performance
|Performance||Support boost and Charm|
|Failure||Support +1 or +2|
|Good||Support +3, Charm +1 (might depend on tea leaf)|
|Great||Support +5, Charm +1|
|Perfect||Support +6, Charm +1|
Perfect Tea Time
If you managed to entertain your guest for the longest time, you will unlock other features such as adjusting the camera angle and giving a gift.
Changing the Camera Angle
One of the two options that you will unlock is the ability to move the camera around. You can change the view to look at your guest or you can make them laugh by pressing a button. It is a novelty option since you don’t gain any additional support boosts.
Giving a Gift
Another bonus feature is the option to bestow a gift. Although you can already do this during the monastery exploration, you can send an additional gift to your chosen recipient even after giving them one during a recent meetup. You’ll be able to earn support boosts more efficiently this way.
