This article is about the normal Cup of tea. For the stat boosting Cup of tea made in Player-owned houses, see Cup of tea (Player-owned house).
Cup of tea detail

A cup of tea is a refreshment which restores 3 hitpoints and temporarily boosts Attack by 2.

Players may purchase a cup of tea for 10 coins each at the tea stall south of the east entrance to Varrock. When a player drinks a cup of tea, they say the phrase, "Aaah, nothing like a nice cuppa tea!" and an empty cup remains in the player's inventory.

Players may also steal from tea stalls to obtain a cup of tea. A Thieving level of 5 is required to steal from tea stalls.

Additionally, Cup of tea can be found in these locations:

  • On the 2nd floor of the house just northwest of the bank in Yanille (must be telegrabbed)
  • South of the herb shop in Taverley
  • North of the tea stall in Varrock (cannot be picked up or telegrabbed)

Quest uses


  • This is one of the only type of tea that cannot be used with a bucket of milk to make a milky version.
  • Nettle tea and POH tea has the empty option, but this standard tea does not.
  • In RuneScape Classic, you were allowed to telegrab the display tea unlike in RuneScape 2; it was tradeable. If you dropped the display tea, you could not pick it up unless you used Telekinetic Grab. It was also used in scamming occasionally.
  • Ghasts cannot rot tea. This may be because a cup of tea is classed as a potion.
