Nanna Earwart's kitchen guardian. It has many powers, depending on the blend of tea she places in its head. Camomile lets it expel a sleep-induing steam. Smoked tea with ginger and juniper allows it to blast foes with a blinding mist that leaves them unable to see.
"Be a dear, and sit with old Nanna. We'll have a nice cup, and chat. I've a lovely white tea brewing, light and clear. A little slice of lemon is all it needs. Clean taste, clear conscience. So easy to talk, so easy to share. Lovely isn't it? Now, tell Nanna all about what brought you here."
