This article is over 2 years old and may contain outdated information

Genshin Impact’s newest culinary event has kicked off, allowing you to treat your companions over in your Serenitea Pot to a nice meal and chat.

The event will last until June 7, 03:59 (server time), and you need to be at least Adventure Rank 20 and above to create your seasonings. You will also need to be Adventure Rank 28 or above, and have completed the quest “Idle Teapot Talk” to cook the dishes and invite your companions over for a taste test.

During the Spices of the West event, you can use previously unlocked recipes to create seasonings. Then, you can add these seasonings to “Delicious” dishes to obtain “Fragrant” dishes. Invite your characters from the Serenitea Pot to taste these dishes, and you can also gain some Companionship EXP for it.

(Note: As of this writing, you currently cannot put down furniture or other items into your Serenitea Pot due to ongoing maintenance. If you do not have characters currently placed down in your Serenitea Pot, you won’t be able to utilize this function of the event, unfortunately.)

To begin making seasonings, a needle on a slider will move back and forth. Each recipe has specific instructions, so follow them closely to add the correct ingredients to the pot. When the needle reaches the end of the slider, or if you make a mistake, you’ll lose a life. If you use up all your lives, the cooking session will end in a failure. You can find all the ingredients you need in the wild, in stores, or even at the Bubu Pharmacy in Liyue.
