Thistle Tea is one of the few items currently available that instantly restore energy. The amount of energy restored is calculated using this equation:

  • [100 - (2 * (Player Level - 40))]

Simply put, this item restores 100 energy from level 5 to 40. Every level after level 40 decreases the amount of energy restored by this item by 2.

Level Amount
40 100
60 60
70 40
80 20
85 10
90 0

At levels above 90, the tooltip currently displays a negative number (-20 at level 100). This is a bug.[2]


Patch changes[]

  • Bc icon Patch 2.0.3 (2007-01-09): The amount of energy restored now decreases at higher levels.
