Thileu tree

The thileu tree (pronounced THIHL-ee-oo)[1] is a slow-growing tree.

Thileu bark

Thileu bark is ground up and used as a hot spice for food. Chelish youths claim that snorting the powdered spice will give someone a hallucinogenic reaction, but it really only causes severe pain. If this powder is mixed with water, a paste can be created that causes skin irritation. Varisians are the only ones who know how to cultivate the bark from a thileu tree without killing it. Unfortunately, bark can only be harvested once a year, so only about 50 pounds or so are exported each year, making it very expensive[2] at 100 gp per pound.[3] Some food and drinks that use thileu bark are the Thileu Lager sold by Jerikal Ashworth of Jerikal's Ales in Katapesh[4] and the Reefclaw pasty in Korvosa.[3]
