Gatalentan tea was a type of tea from the planet Gatalenta that was consumable by Krex and Humans. By the third Galactic War, General Ardinondu Dipolus Daeruun of the Galactic Republic, who favored the tea, had been told that the tea could only be appreciated if shared.
Behind the scenesEdit
- "I'll have a case sent to you—the flavor is unmatched, though I'm told it can only truly be appreciated when shared."
- ―Ardinondu Dipolus Daeruun, to the Alliance Commander
Gatalentan tea was first mentioned in the Star Wars Legends continuity in BioWare's 2011 massively multiplayer online role-playing video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, specifically the 2018 Jedi Under Siege update for the 2016 Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion. The tea is only mentioned if the player's character, known in-universe as the Alliance Commander, is among the character classes originally aligned with the Republic. Gatalentan tea was originally introduced in the 2016 canon novel Bloodline, written by Claudia Gray.
During a conversation with General Daeruun in The Old Republic, the Commander can mention liking or disliking tea, depending on the player's choices. If the player expresses interest in the beverage, Daeruun will promise to send the Commander a case of Gatalentan tea. Choosing that option makes a letter from Doctor Eckard Lokin become available after completing the Jedi Under Siege storyline. In the letter, Lokin states he would like to share Gatalentan tea with the Commander.
In The Dantooine Incursion update for The Old Republic, released in 2019, if the Commander is not a spy for the Sith Empire and if a Republic News Network interview with the Commander boosts the morale in Republic, Daeruun sends the character a letter. In it, the General congratulates the Commander and invites the character to drink Gatalentan tea with him.
