Genshin Impact’s update 1.5 introduced the Serenitea Pot feature that allows players to build and manage their own manors. Every weekend, a traveling teapot merchant will appear in each player’s realm, carrying rare/uncommon furnishings to sell. In this page, we will cover how the Teapot Travelling Merchant works.

The Serenitea Pot is a housing/dorm system recently implemented in Genshin Impact where players get to personalize their own realms that act as individual and separate dimensions. Of course, it can get very lonely if you’re just customizing your realm so inviting guests over to show off your personalized space or visiting your friends' realms can bring much solace. For more information about how to unlock, access, or leave the pot, please check out our dedicated guide for it.

The Teapot Traveling Salesman is a special merchant that appears every Friday, 4AM GMT+8 and leaves on Monday, 4AM GMT+8. He offers rare furnishings; at least two random animals or random terrains. Your guests can buy the goods that your traveling salesman has but thankfully, you have a full 24 hours “lockdown” on the merchant’s goods. This means only you can purchase the goods on the first day the merchant appears (Friday 4AM). Your guests can only start buying from your teapot merchant on Saturday 4AM GMT+8 onwards. This prevents guests from “snipe-buying” the exclusive items for sale by your weekly teapot merchant, especially animals as they’re very sought-after.

The traveling salesman’s location can be seen when you open the map or when you’re viewing the realm through placement mode. You’ll still need to personally go and talk to the salesman in order to see his inventory.

If your access permissions for your Serenitea Pot is set to Direct Access, make sure to at least check your teapot salesman’s inventory on Friday, as soon as the game resets. Otherwise, any guest during the weekends might purchase what your salesman has to offer. If you want to be safe, you can always set your Serenitea Pot’s access permissions to Join After Approval.

Genshin Impact’s Serenitea Pot system is not for everyone. However, for those who’ll take advantage of what the feature has to offer, rewards and enjoyment awaits. We’re enjoying the housing system so far and we’re quite excited what additional features or conveniences the future updates will bring. I’m personally excited about having NPCs live in your realm as they feel pretty empty right now. That emptiness is temporarily being occupied by animals for the meantime.

This concludes our detailed guide about the Teapot Travelling Salesman in Genshin Impact’s Serenitea Pot. Please check out our other pages within the guide for more helpful tips and information about the game.
