Mistaké[1] is an elderly woman who owns a tea shop on the outskirts of Ninjago City.


Spellbound (Flashback)

Following the end of the Serpentine Wars, Mistaké was part of the council that ordered the banishment of the Anacondrai generals to the Cursed Realm. When Arcturus begged for mercy, Mistaké claims she never heard of it.

Tick Tock

Master Wu visited her shop, requesting Traveler's Tea. At first she claimed not to have heard of it, but upon receiving payment, brought the tea out from behind the counter, warning him of the consequences.

Day of the Great Devourer

Lord Garmadon entered Mistaké's shop, asking for Traveler's Tea. She told him that only a fool would request the tea, but after realizing that his request was serious, she changed her mind and went to retrieve some from the back of the shop.

Child's Play

When the Ninja were reduced to children and menaced by a resurrected Grundle, Master Wu and Nya went to Mistaké's shop with a request for a special tea, which she replied that they are all special and calls Wu an old fool before Nya refers to what Mistaké knows is Tomorrow's Tea. When she went to check her supply in the back, she was unable to pinpoint the tea's location. As a result, Nya and Master Wu were forced to rush to the Ninjas' aid upon finally retrieving Tomorrow's Tea.

Lost in Time

Presently Wu informed the Elemental Masters to find her and drink Obscuri-Tea to forget the return of the Time Twins.

The Oni and the Dragon

Lloyd, Jay, Zane, and Cole visited Mistaké for the Tea of Truth to loosen Luke Cunningham's tongue. At first, she tried to claim not knowing her own name, but upon seeing Lloyd, she apologised for her rudeness because she didn't recognise his voice. Knowing they were after the tea, she goes in the back, warning them that the truth can be dangerous beforehand. Upon seeing a painting, Mistaké said it is the Oni and the Dragon. While Cole and Zane left with the tea, Lloyd and Jay stayed behind to listen to Mistaké's story about the Oni and the Dragon after she gave them the Tea of Enlightenment to visualise it. She also warns Lloyd not to let the three Oni Masks unite as they will resurrect Lord Garmadon, but not as the same man that was his father, but a soulless being.


Mistaké is a little impolite, pretending not to have or know things like Traveller's Tea. But after being paid or recognizing people she knows, she either heeds warnings about the teas she sold or gives advice.



  • Her name is a play on the word "mistake."
  • In her first appearance, there was a child with her when Wu came to purchase Travelers' Tea. It is unknown if the child is a relative or a neighbor she was babysitting.
  • She is the second person to remark Lloyd’s voice change in Season 8; the first is Cole.
