There are many different way to build support with your students and allies in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, but one of the most enjoyable is to invite your favorite characters to tea. By inviting a character to a tea party, you’ll get the chance to spend some quality time with them, boosting their support rating with you enormously if you play your cards right. However, to get a long with your guest, you need to know them well enough to choose topics of conversation. To help you enjoy a nice cuppa with anyone you want, we’ve put together a Tea Party guide for Fire Emblem: Three Houses to help you with tea choices, conversation topics and more.
How to invite characters to Tea
You’ll unlock the ability to Invite students to tea during part one of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Early on in the game, during one of your explore phases at the monastery, you’ll be given a quest to offer a tea set to another student who’s interested in tea. The Golden Deer’s Lorenz is a great choice here, and when you deliver it to him you’ll unlock the option to invite other characters to tea. It’ll cost one of your activity points for the day, but you can get a lot of support from it as well.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses Tea Party guide
There’s little better than a nice relaxing cup of tea, and Fire Emblem: Three Houses knows it. Tea Parties give you a chance to boost one character’s support level greatly, and also offer a bonus increase to your Charm stat when performed well. Get enough options right and the character will stay with you for an extended period, letting you grab screenshots or talk to them for a while.
To succeed in a Tea Party you have several important decisions including which tea to offer, three topics of conversation and, if you’re successful, how to respond to their final comment. Each character has two teas that are their favorites, and a range of conversation topics they like. There are also final responses that'll help you keep the tea party going for a special ending where you can observe your companion or offer them gifts. To help you out we’ve catalogued all the tea responses for characters we’ve invited so far.
Bear in mind that we’ve yet to invites every single character in the game (there are a lot after all) and that different topics of conversation may come up than the ones listed below. The key here is to try and pick the tea and conversation options that match the character you’re spending time with. Diligent military types won’t want to discuss Dreamy Knights, for example. With that out of the way, here’s our full Tea Party guide for Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
