What’s Up at the Teahouse:

“Slow down. Life is meant to be savored”:
Immersive IC socializing.

Non-aligned: All amiable characters of any affiliation are welcome! No Fighting, No Biting. Leave politics & religion outside.

Mandatory-use Weapons Rack is prominently placed (OOC = mailbox). This includes staves of all descriptions, as well as anything that appears weapon-like even if it’s not a weapon IC.

Come when you want & leave when you need to.

  • In keeping with the relaxed ambience, we operate on “Pandaren Time”. Life is meant to be savored slowly, as the saying goes. Doors open when the staff gets there – might be earlier than the official start time or a few minutes late.
  • Pandaren is our first language, so expect the locals to be nomnomming from time to time.
  • All patrons are welcome to use elixir of tongues, but not required. Some genuine IC translation is available. …
  • Inky Black Potions recommended as well. Evenings by the seashore are indescribable.

No Fighting, No Biting

  • Leave politics & religion outside.
  • Mandatory-use Weapons Rack is prominently placed (OOC = mailbox). This includes staves and potentially weapon-like off-hand items of all descriptions. Rare exceptions for IC health-related support may be made - if arranged in advance.

In addition to the scheduled public evenings, from time to time the teahouse may be open for special events. For example, we might be setting up our portable tea stand at an open event. Or celebrating a holiday together off somewhere else. Or, a guild or other group might reserve the premises for a private function. To kick off this new kind of fun …

A BIT OF IC DESCRIPTION:
Kunbo’s shipping warehouse in Sri-La Village has been renovated as a improved and more spacious teahouse with modest living quarters upstairs. Coming to the teahouse is coming to his home - a quiet corner away from the hurlyburly where you can take off your shoes, enjoy a tasty bite & a cuppa, and a friendly conversation with some interesting people.

“Kunbo’s Wharf” is a little bit of unobtrusive headcanon. As we all know, settlements the world over are larger than in-game. Made a map showing the approximate location within Sri-La Village.

A more detailed IC description of the renovated Quilen & Cloud Teahouse is in the works.

I’ve tested it for over 1 1/2 hours with a lvl 28. Including running around the Village. No eagles!

This means low-level characters are safe. No mobs!
So find a way to Sri-La, no need to level-up.

I’m happy to see the teahouse coming back this month! It’s my favorite place in all of Pandaria. (Nazgo’s, too, ICly!) :slight_smile:

Thank you for that!

Which reminds me, I should make it clear that only this first special event is restricted to Pandaren. Expect more things open to all in the future. Like a beach bash sometime during the summer.

I can try to drop in on a Pandaren that day if I am not working at the time.

Thanks again for the comments. With all the IC & OOC changes that affect the life of the teahouse your encouragement is what keeps me going.

Been looking through the more obscure foods available ingame, putting together some things to try out on our test run this Sunday.

Pandaren preview tonight 7 PM - alts & first-time characters welcome. Because we’ll all be speaking Pandaren no need for elixirs.

Grand Opening: next Sunday the 22nd, 7 PM elixirs optional. We have staff available that speak both major languages & can accommodate you through IC translation - which can be fun in and of itself.

Thank you very much everyone that came out last night. I was sorry to have to log after a mere four hours. But at least you helped get some good additions to the Spring menu.

So our Grand Opening next Sunday is going to include a few dishes that Pandaren feel Kunbo prepares well enough to share with the world.

Grand Opening this coming Sunday ( March 22) at 7 PM in Sri-La at the building next to the flight master.

The IC weapons rack is easy to spot - it’s where the ingame mailbox is.

New menu items: clay pot fish (whole fresh-caught, baked in individual vessels in a savory lemongrass sauce ), sticky buns generously coated with honey then deep-fried, and a spring salad including young greens, shoots, & edible wildflower petals, with a light dressing of diced lushrooms in plum vinaigrette.

Many of your favorite dishes are still available, along with a wide variety of teas & other beverages.

Reminder -

Grand (re)Opening tonight 7 PM Sri-La Inn. Be sure to check out the new more extensive menu at the link in the previous post.

special note - in the past on a few occasions we’ve seen the sadness of Horde characters showing up, feeling out-numbered, then leaving before yet another one comes along & repeats the process. Well, we’ve made an extra effort behind the scenes to get the word out that everybody is welcome who can behave amiably. This seems to have paid off. There are rumbles of quite a few more showing up this time. So if you show up & don’t see many others wearing the same color tabard as you - stick around. Often times people show up a bit late.

Only a couple of hours to go.

Did i mention that the food’s always free? :panda_face: :ramen:

Open for business as of … now!

big hugs & thanks to everyone who came out last night & made the grand opening a success!

Next Sunday (29th) we’ll be making our monthly excursion to the Wanderers’ Festival. Teahouse time & location as usual, then depart from there about 10:30 pm for Turtle Beach in Krasarang.

Only a couple-three hours to go. Kunbo is in Halfhill atm, getting whatever goodies he can’t grow or catch for himself.
