The high altitudes in Theaceae make agriculture very difficult, resulting in food scarcity and limited options. The produce on the dry side and foothills of the east side is exclusively leafy greens, root vegetables, and herbs. The food available in the jungles of the east side is more varied, but often adventurers are on the menu.
The limited agriculture effects the local beverages as well; wine is limited, ale is different, and tea is common. Hopps are difficult to grow at altitude, so ale is flavored with local herbs instead. Even throughout the dry side, tea is a staple of the Theaceaen culture due to its prolific growth in the region.
As a result of these restrictions, food and beverages cost twice the prices listed in the Player’s Handbook on the Food and Drink table.
