Description: SCP-XXXX is the designation given to the anomalous process used to create and brew tea. SCP-XXXX has existed for at least 4,700 years, first manifesting in ancient China and eventually reaching the United Kingdom in the 17th century, after which SCP-XXXX's effects became drastically more potent.

SCP-XXXX's effects set in after an individual consumes any amount of tea, of any kind. Following this, an unknown entity, believed to be essophysical in nature, will assume a certain level of control over the affected individual for an indefinite period. This entity has been designated SCP-XXXX-Ψ. The extent of SCP-XXXX-Ψ's power is unknown, however individuals under the entity's control have displayed a notable increase in political expertise, patriotism, and cynical humor, among various other alterations.

While the influence of SCP-XXXX-Ψ is largely unnoticed today, it is believed that the entity is responsible for a great number of successful British endeavors throughout history, notably during the colonial period, in which the British Empire assumed dominance over several nations. The reasoning, if any, for the lack of SCP-XXXX-Ψ's influence among the British population since the modern era is currently unknown.

SCP-XXXX-Ω is a small clay pot filled with boiling water, and infused with a single Camellia sinensis1 leaf. SCP-XXXX-Ω is currently situated in an unknown location within the Tower of London in the possession of the British Occult Service (BOS). The importance of SCP-XXXX-Ω is unknown, but it is believed to be instrumental to SCP-XXXX's effects, and perhaps SCP-XXXX-Ψ's influence.
