Character Food Preferences

Go into your Teapot Realm, talk to a Teapot Companion, click on “Please try this!” and give them a Fragrant Dish. This will provide you Companionship EXP for that character, but you can only get the Companionship EXP 3 times for each character!

You can give Fragrant Dishes to all Teapot Companions that you placed in your Serenitea Pot. Each character’s reaction varies with different dishes.

Below are the foods preferred by the characters, separated by their elements.

Some Initial Notes:

1. Aloy isn’t on the list because we can’t feed her any foods in the Serenitea Pot.

2. Currently, you can change the layout, but you can’t add characters into the pot.

While the maintenance for Serenitea Pot is not finished yet, some people have already maxed all friendships, and the Genshin Impact WiKi already lists all the likes/neutral/dislikes dishes for all characters.
