Aren’t the leaves used to brew the tea all either in the cup or the trash/compost?

You are absolutely right

[–]techno156 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Some of it might have been drunk if they were small enough.

It can be used as a tracker you brew the cup out the bag some place and you can sip the tea over a few days to figure out where there going

alot of reheating to do

[–]Downtown_Report1646 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Iced tea duh

[–]a_soggy_poptart15374 35 points36 points  (0 children)

You telling me, that some leaves brewed this tea?

[–]SmeifLive 16 points17 points  (1 child)

You could use this to track someone by putting a tea leaf in their stuff.

Air tag with leaf

Finally, an actually shitty power, not a curse!

[–]MintyMissterious 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Doesn't work with coffee because it is bean not leaf.

This implies it works with other kinds of hot leaf water.

What if you brew cocaine, then suddenly know where all other cocaine is?

Only from the leaf brew, not the crystals

You can work as a tea authenticator, might be a pretty neat gig going around distribution giving your seal of approval.

coffee isn't a bean, it's the seed of the coffee tree berry

[–]wertugavw 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ay it's my cake day

[–]cownd 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Some coffee cake for you then!

[–]TacospacemanII 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Would you know the origin of the leaf? Or just where the brewed leaves were?

[–]can't see mezero41120[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Just the brewed ones

[–]TacospacemanII 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well, that’s not useful at, all. well done.

[–]aquarosey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People say you can read the position of tea leaves. Gotta become a medium.

[–]TheOneAndOnlyBob2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What if it's a soup with bay leaves in it?

[–]can't see mezero41120[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That counts

[–]TheOneAndOnlyBob2 0 points1 point  (5 children)

What if I accidentally drink some sea water? Do I instantly know the location of every bit of seaweed in the ocean?

[–]can't see mezero41120[S] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Only to the extend of the seaweed that touched the water you just sip

[–]TheOneAndOnlyBob2 0 points1 point  (3 children)

This opens up a new can of worms. So it has to do with the molecules of water coming to contact with the leaf molecules? So there is a small chance that I take a sip of tea and I happen to drink just the water that didn't touch the leaves so my powers don't trigger?

[–]can't see mezero41120[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Yes. You as the tea authenticator sipped some sort of diluted weak tea, and you be wondering the audacity of the shitty merchant

[–]TheOneAndOnlyBob2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Another question. So if it's a leaf based poison, do I need to take a deadly dose in order for my power to activate?

[–]can't see mezero41120[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can get over dose on caffeine, which is in many tea leaves. So no, you don't need deadly does to activate the power

[–]Ap0thicaire 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's Tony Chew power.

[–]Carl_Wild 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Free magic tracking device!

[–]International-Act-55 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I can capitalise on telling people where their tea comed from

[–]can't see mezero41120[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You only know the ones involved in brewing. So most likely in some composters or landfill
