You can buy a Tea maker anywhere for just 100Cr. The Tea Maker is supplied with 25 'T-pods'. A 'T-pod' is a disposable mug containing all the ingredients for your cup of tea. The Tea Maker then boils water, adds it to your tea and brews it. When installed it will make you a lovely cup of tea in just 15 seconds.

Your Tea maker is primable equipment - 'Shift-n' to prime, and 'n' to activate. Console messages will tell you how your tea is progressing, and a gong will alert you when it is ready.

Your Tea Maker will warn you when you have only five 'T-pods' remaining and you will also be told when you are using your last 'T-pod'. You can buy more 'T-pods' from the ship Outfitters when there are five or less left in the machine. The Tea Maker will not work once these are all gone. Choose between Tea, Tea with Milk, Tea with Sugar and Tea with Milk and Sugar. 25 'T-pods' will cost 10Cr.

The Express Tea Maker can be fitted in the cockpit of your ship where it is unlikely to suffer damage, and only takes five minutes to install. It is fully portable and you can move it to any new ship you buy.
