Ent-draughts

The waters of the Ents

"Mortals cannot go drinking ent-draughts and expect no more to come of them than a pot of beer."
Words of Gimli
from The Return of the King VI 4, The Field of Cormallen

The mysterious and potent waters consumed by the Ents. Though little is known about them in detail, they seem to have been made from river-water, but with a unique and subtle flavour reflecting the Ents' association with trees and forests. Their power of growth was most evident when they were drunk by beings other than Ents: the Ent-draughts taken by Merry and Pippin added three inches or more to their heights, making them the tallest Hobbits in the history of the Shire.
