Yes, yes, I know I already had a tea thread, but it was so unorganized.

More to come on the shop, but right now I'm simply having fun making the teas. XD I'm not sure where it will be in game yet, if at all (might simply be left in Haven) but we shall see. Hoping for some monthly, cross faction events with an orc.

I'm open to ideas and suggestions. Feel free to use/adapt to GHI if you please (not all will fit on GHI however).

Also, I cannot for the life of me come up with a tea shop name. Any suggestions?

Blood-Honey Drink
The Blood-Honey Drink, like most orcish remedies, is seldom seen outside of shamanic circles. Given the heavy amounts of blood required, it is no wonder that Durotar's visitors would like to keep their distance.
Hot and bitter. Known to cause nausea and headaches*.
*One fatality is known to have occured. Sometime after Durotar's founding, the dwarven explorer Brann Bronzebeard was reported to have visited with the orcs and drank from their tea. Reported to have consumed three barrels of the stuff, Brann was pronounced dead after in and out bouts of fever and dysentery, only to awake an hour later and, reportedly, punching his way out of the desert.

Hrm... I actually might have a solution for your name problem. I was going to have my pandaren monk open a teashop/dojo/something else, but I've sort of canceled that idea. It entirely depends if the name seems right to you or not but right now I have <The Jasmine Dragon> just sitting there and being used as a bank-guild.
