Book 3 Teatime Adventures Tea Pets

Live the cozy life in this all-new way to play Teatime Adventures. Tend to your tea pets, rehabilitate wildlife, and design playful habitats!

Tea Pets provides a new way to connect at the table as you build out your Teatime Adventures world, either playing Tea Pets as a prologue to a traditional Teatime Adventures campaign or weaving it in between seasons as you journey through the world.

Tea Blends

We are happy to once again be partnering with Friday Afternoon Tea, an independent, family owned, geeky themed tea company for our six custom blended Teatime Adventures teas.    Owner Friday Elliot’s unique take on blending stems from her experiences with a form of Synesthesia that allows her to perceive abstract concepts as flavor profiles. Her work in capturing the whimsy of the Verdant Isles and translating it into a cup is not to be missed!

Each Tea Party Set includes the four original Teatime Adventures blends (Harvest Fire, Star’s Light, Yonder Fog, and Crystal Garden) each of which pairs with one of the adventures in the Tales from Oakenbend as well as two brand new blends made special for this campaign.

The Rains of Starsong which captures the magical astronomy of the Asteri who live in elevated treetop homes among the mangroves of the Southern Salt, the ancestral home of the Snootlings.

Greenbranch Festival which celebrates the many ribbon and flag-bedecked festivals that take place in Greenbranch, including the annual Hoptop courier competition that is featured in our Verdant Isles board game, Harvest Hoppers.

$10,000 Glitter Raccoon added

Welcome to the Isles, Glitter Raccoon!

These sly denizens of the Verdant Isles fancy themselves to be the ultimate thieves and can often be found encroaching on pantries, pastry trucks, and the like. Of course, you'll always know exactly who stole your scones by the cloud of glitter they leave behind. Follow a glitter trail back into the forest, and you're also certain to discover a happy, snoozing Glitter Raccoon and the crumbs of whatever you recently baked.

$15,000 Accordion Cat added

Beloved across all of the isles, Accordion Cats are known for their jovial attitude and the distinctive sound of their approach. Their unique, slinky-like waddle and jingling saunter have inspired many a musician to adopt them as pets and have given the species the nickname of "the little muse".

Of course, many Accordion Cats struggle to hunt prey in the wild, which is why they have evolved to a more omnivorous diet. They can often be found eating berries, covered snoot to chin in berry juice and covered back to tail in burs. They do retain a predator's sharp claws, though, as many a musician has ALSO discovered. Accordion Cats particularly dislike off key notes, so while "the little muse inspires" the "little critic also punishes" as the saying goes.

$20,000 Pickle Snake added

The common Pickle Snake is harmless, but does cause quite a bit of mischief. Their eggs resemble pickles, hence the name, and more than a few poor gardeners have bent down to pick one up only to discover a tiny snake in their basket by the time they bring the egg home. This is the origin of the colloquial saying: "Let pickles lie where they're found." meaning that a simple - but not well thought out - choice can often lead to difficulties later on down the road.

Usage 1 (literal): Good heavens, Margaret, were you picking pickles? I found a snake in the kitchen!
Usage 2 (figurative): I wouldn't get involved in that argument. Let pickles lie where they're found.

Platypus Hedgehog Added

The Grand Platypus Hedgehog is both marveled and feared due to its tremendous size. Although its hoglets are only about the size of a cat, the adults can grow as tall as 30 to 40 feet. They use their height to graze on fruit trees and root deep into the bottom of lakes filtering mud for aquatic creatures to snack on. They are most common in the lakes across central Umberleap near the Boggy Downs, though some have been spotted splashing as far west as Augur's Bay. They are considered good luck to spot when boating, but certainly they are quite bad luck to spot in your apple orchards.

$30,000 Saltwater Star Gecko added

Welcome to the Isles, Saltwater Star Gecko!
The Saltwater Star Gecko can be most easily identified from the star shaped pattern that so often appears on its head. Unlike true geckos, the Star Gecko is an aquatic amphibious creature, closer in nature to axolotls than reptiles. These friendly and curious creatures can grow to about 12 inches in length and are often found playing in waters near the many islands in the Southern Salt. They thoroughly enjoy the many storms that pass through this area, often leaping up above the waterline in anticipation. This makes them helpful to storm forecasters and has earned them a spot in fancy saltwater tanks aboard many ships that travel stormy seas.

$35,000 Potato Dog added

For many years, the humble potato dog was primarily seen as a bit of a pest to farmers. Their keen noses, often stuffed into the dirt, can be used to hunt a variety of tubers and their small but wide paws allow them to quickly burrow in the ground to root them out. This can cause endless consternation to farmers looking to raise potatoes, yams, and other types of produce as they seek to protect them from the inquiring paws of wild potato dogs. But more recently, domesticated potato dogs have become widely sought after due to their adorably potato-shaped figure and joyful demeanor. They adore snuggling up with their owners and frequently "bury" themselves in blankets. They love sweating by fireplaces under numerous blankets. Some owners even claim that they give off a faint "baked potato-like" smell when fully warmed up. Whatever some might think of wild potato dogs, it's clear that the domesticated variety is here to stay. They can often be spotted in high society, from the palace in Lushleaf all the way to the concert halls of Honey Rose.

$40,000 Ribboned Weaver Bird added

Weaver birds are best known for constructing elaborate nests tied up by them in knots. The Ribboned Weaver Bird is an offshoot of this bird best known to the people of Honey Rose. Every year during the Binding of the Deerkin, when friendly towngoers head outside to beribbon everything from the benches to the lamp posts, you can be sure that some Ribboned Weaver Birds will be anxiously waiting nearby as well to snitch those ribbons and tie them into their nests. More than one humble shopowner has hopped or stomped out of their storefront to try and rescue a silken ribbon snatched just before the holiday.

$45,000 Teacup Spider added

Small, furry, and very jumpy, teacup spiders are a harmless but sometimes quite surprising addition to cupboards across the Verdant Isles. They prefer to make small funnel nests in teacups and, as they construct them, begin to take on the visual characteristics of the teacup they nest in. Such elaborate designs can be quite beautiful to behold. Some in the Isles even keep a glass cupboard full of the spiders and teacups of different designs in a Teacup Spider Menagerie.

At $50,000, a field guide poster and a Friendly Gaint Tea Pet will be added

Have you heard the tales? As the trawlers come back across Oyster Bay, they say the night sky had flipped upside down. Beneath their ship: a field of stars for hundreds of feet in every direction. The Finfolk of Oyster Bay know the secret behind the rumors. They also know to keep their distance from that celestial sight. It signals a bloom of Constellation Jellyfish! Each jellyfish is 100 to 150 feet long and puts on a dazzling bioluminescent light show at night. Their tentacles trail behind them, delivering a painful sting to anyone reckless enough to jump into the water during such miraculous displays. Witnessing a Constellation Jellyfish bloom is considered one of the great wonders of the Verdant Isles.

At $55,000, Sugar Pangolin Added

Armored like standard pangolins, this creature has evolved the ability to grow thin strands of hair around the edges of its scales. The hairs look almost like spun sugar (giving the animal its name), which tangles up into a puff ball that can then be sheared for cloth. Farmers sometimes attempt to raise herds of Sugar Pangolins for shearing, although their solitary nature makes them a poor fit for this type of husbandry. Sugar Pangolins are quite ornery as well, so they tend to make poor house pets. Nevertheless, quite a few children across the Isles have stuffed plushes of Sugar Pangolins due to their adorable, fluffy characteristics. It's unknown what evolutionary benefit caused the Sugar Pangolin to deviate from its non-sugared cousins. Some say it was to keep them warmer in the winter, others say it is showcase their health and vitality, and still others say it is to dissuade the Gnarly Treeswooper from trying to snack on the Sugar Pangolins... for they are known to hate eating fuzzy things. Research is ongoing at the Amberhaven Academy.

At $60,000, Miniature Tiger Added

This domesticated cat descended from a fierce lineage of Amberhaven tigers which typically grow to six to seven feet in length. These miniature tigers, however, grow only to 12 to 24 inches. They come in a variety of colored stripes, having lost their evolutionary need for camouflage long ago. Despite their often quite comfy lives poking around farms and in the alleys behind restaurants, they still retain many of the hunting tendencies of their ancestors. They enjoy pouncing on dust bunnies whenever they spot them, and flower dragons know very well to keep their distance. Tea pet caretakers also know not to delay a Miniature Tiger's dinner by too long unless they would like to feel miniature claws coming into contact with their ankles.

At $65,000, Pumpkin Tortoise Added

Much beloved during Evenfall and other autumn holidays, the Pumpkin Tortoise is best known for its Astra-infused illuminations. These gentle creatures tend to grow to about two feet in length, and their knobby shells provide a subtle, flickering glow at night. Depending on the age and size of the tortoise, this effect most resembles the carved turnips, gourds, or pumpkins that many children and adults throughout the Isle carve each Evenfall. It is said in northern Alpengreen that spotting a Pumpkin Tortoise on Evenfall can actually indicate a mild winter between Evenfall and the Feast of Flourish in March.

At $75,000, Pocket Otters & Sun Clams Added

At $80,000, Chaos Chinchilla Added
