This is my take on how to use the Kelp item as a sweet water nature product
Item Lore: Chiay - Drahl Swamp Tea
By Milena Suvorova
No, no, no, beled! The Drahl are not only known for sum’ good Kova, Corn Liquor and anything to get you drunk. In more aristocratic environments and around the higher ranks within the principalities, the Drahl are known to drink the extract from fresh or maybe dried leaves, called ‘Chiay’ leaves. Yes, you Oserian debils pronounce it as "Chay" leaves... Beled. These leaves don’t grow on trees though. Rare and carefully selected leaves are picked from the Crookmire marshes and put inside special cultivating lakes, where they will go, get harvested and dried, or consumed immediately by cooking it.

Putting leaves inside a cauldron of boiling water will extract the flavour of the Chiay leaves. After that, tea can be served into a Samovar, or tea pot. This is to keep the tea warm, and as a method to divide it between cups. Sugar and milk can be added if needed. The Korsian Debils even like their Chiay leaves to be cooked in milk instead of water. Chiay leaves can also be eaten when dried in a smoker. It’s not a pleasant taste, but it fills the body if needed. You can also bundle the tea inside big blocks to serve as a transportation unit, often used by Drahl merchants, and it can even be used as fuel for the fire. Be warned though, the leaves will crackle around like firework, making a loud noise, and the smell can be unbearable to some foreign souls.

What is not to like about it, beled? The Drahl invented the holy combination of Chiay leaves, some boiling water, and a little bit of sugar. The Oserian aristocracy likes it too, even they hate us. They even try to invent their own flavours, such as Chiay "blends" with Korsian spices, nahui... The only way to "Blend" this stuff is with some Sleepers Karibah, and maybe Lovers Karibah if you are a Korsian Sobaka. What's next, Chiay with Dry smoke? Beled Sukah...!!
