    Hi All,

    I seem to be stuck at 89.2 cooking, and thought I'd try making Green Tea.
    I see that Green Tea needs Green Tea as an ingredient.
    Can anyone be kind enough to guide me as to where i can get (raw?) Green Tea.

    Also -
    Do Food Decoration Tools give any skill gain?
    I made a hundred or so and didn't see any gain (at 89.2 cooking).

    I'm not sure about the deco tools but the green tea I can help.

    Go to the Inn in Zento. The innkeeper and others inside there sell the raw green tea in baskets.

    Thank You Kariny.

    I found the raw tea at the Miyabi Inn in Zento - but (on Atlantic) only one of the Innkeepers has stock, so its not a great option for me to try for skill gain (i did get .1 tho - woot!).

    And to answer my own question - Yes Food Decoration Tools do give skill gains.
    I tried on Test Center and saw gains occurring at 75 skill.
    On Atlantic making these has given me .3 so far (one was from GGS tho).

    I took my cooking all the way to gm on bread. Pick the wheat and make flour, which gets gains, then cook the bread, which stacks when made. I gathered as much wheat as I could, which also stacks, then made a macro that made flour then dough then bread.

    Another good but somewhat unreliable method is cooking meats. You can buy them from most any butcher, only problem is they get more and more expensive as you buy. 500 of said meat can either get you .8 gains or none..sorta depends on the RGN.

    maybe those enchanted food stuffs then turn around and sell them on a vendor? do those even sell anymore? mmm..

    I'm at 97.7 cooking and the meat still works for me..but the green tea seemed to get better gains.
