Tristianbark Tea

The Tristianbark Tea is one of the best natural remedies known to Rameria, relieving pain and helping victims of various afflictions relax and actually rest, having proven especially effective against fever.
While there is some debate on whether the tea actually helps to combat any particular symptoms or merely helps to keep the pain at bay, thereby letting the body itself work far more efficiently at fending off sicknesses, it is now a widely accepted fact in the medical community that this is one of the best remedies available that do not threaten the dreaded Healing Rot.

Discovery

The Tristianbark was, as the name would imply, discovered by a priest of Tristian, God of the Healing Sunlight near the capital of Cerwood. He routinely offered tea to both visitors and sick people who turned to the temple he headed, brewed with local ingredients.
He noticed that patients who drank tea made from willow bark - which he promptly renamed to Tristianbark as thanks to his god for this miraculous discovery - felt far less pain from similar afflictions and even recovered swifter.

Availability and Complexity

In theory, it is very easily available, as the priests of Tristian share their discovery far and wide, and willows aren't very rare - as a matter of fact, multiple governments have started drives to plant more of them after the discovery. In order to prepare the tea itself, the only things required aside from the bark itself are a clean water supply, a pot and some source of heat, all accessible to even the lowliest of peasants.
Still, many people are sceptical about it and some flat-out refuse to drink it.
