Tea Party - Effects And How to Unlock
Bond With Other Characters
On certain days, the player can hold a Tea Party and invite another character to join it. The player is then given a chance to deepen bonds with the invited character. Holding a Tea Party requires 1 Activity Point and Tea Leaves. Tea Parties can also be done by directly talking to characters.
Characters From Other Houses Can Join Too
For the player to be able to invite characters from other houses, a Support Level of C or above is required. If you have a character that you like in other houses, be sure to raise their support level so you can invite them to a Tea Party.

Character Availability Is Random
As the availability of characters are random, there are times that your invitation will be rejected. You can either wait for them to be available or you can reload the game and ask them again. Reloading can be very useful especially if you're aiming to bond with a specific character.
Repeat Invites Are Alright!
Once a Tea Party is over, the player can again invite the character to another Tea Party. You can spend all your Activity Points on one character for Tea Parties. However, they might refuse as the replies are random, which can be remedied by simply reloading the game and asking again.Click Here To Know How to Easily Restart The Game!

Choosing The Right Tea
How the Tea Party turns out depends on what type of tea you bring to the table. Knowing a character's taste helps as this can help you get that coveted Extra Time! Not using your partner's favorite tea lowers your chances of getting to Extra Time as making a single mistake locks you from progressing to the fourth dialogue.
Flow Depends On Your Choices
The Tea Party can have a maximum of 4 conversations. The player is offered 3 choices in each conversation and choosing the correct one strengthens the bond with the invited character, and also allows the player to proceed further to gain more bonuses. The default number of conversations is 3 and it can be raised to 4, provided the player has been successful in carrying the conversation.
Know Your Partner's Personality
Knowing your invited character's personality, dislikes and hobbies, certainly helps in helping you figure out the appropriate choices. Check out the Roster to get more detailed information about them.Check Out This List For More Info About Characters In The Game!
Failed Tea Parties Do Not Weaken Bonds
Choosing the wrong answers continuously results in not improving bonds with the invited character, and there is a chance for the Tea Party to forcibly end. Even though that is the case, the invited character's bond will still be raised.
Aim For Extra Time!
Successfully answering three times rewards the player with Extra Time. In Extra Time, you can observe the character for clean screenshots or give gifts to further boost the bonuses.
Tea Party - How To Get Tea
Found Within The Monastery Or As Rewards
Tea can be acquired through a number of ways. It can be picked up from places within the Monastery walls, be bought from merchants, or rewarded by completing quests or defeating enemies. Take your time in exploring every corner of the monastery as new tea leaves pop up every month.
Unlock Tea Selling Merchant
Completing the quest "Clearing the Way" unlocks two new merchants, with one merchant selling an unlimited supply of tea leaves. If you prefer to woo characters using the power of tea, best prioritize this quest.
