There are so many ways to increase your support rank with characters in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Some of the easiest involve finding the right gifts for your favorite characters or returning their lost items.
However, the fastest way to strengthen your bond with characters is through tea parties. The only problem is, successfully throwing a tea party with your date of choice isn’t as simple as inviting them and getting the stat boost. To maximize your time with each character, you have to successfully respond to three random prompts that might appear on any given date with that person. If you can answer each one correctly, your tea party will be a success and you have the option of giving gifts to further boost your connection with your guest.
The challenge comes from knowing which answers to pick from one of the many prompts that may come up during your tea time. Each character has a unique personality and knowing what they like and dislike is the key to a successful tea party. To help you have the best date you can have, we put together this Fire Emblem: Three Houses tea party guide together.
Below you’ll find a list of each characters interests, likes and dislikes. Knowing this ahead of your tea party date will give you clues as to which answers best match any of the random prompts that may appear during a date. To be clear, this isn’t an answer guide, but rather a starting point for understanding how you might respond to your date.
For a more robust guide, consider looking at a Google document from r/FireEmblemThreeHouses guide on Reddit, which is packed with just about everything you need to know like each character’s favorite tea, the right responses to pick, and the best reactions to choose at the end of your tea time.
