Why We Love Teas In The Sims 4

Brewing tea in The Sims 4 is a pleasant part of the gameplay. Apart from serving as an obvious alternative to our Sims’ regular choice of coffee and espresso, these teas can also provide our Sims with much-needed energy to perk them up. Not only that, these cups can also influence a change in their moods! This will give them a boost in their creativity, focus, etc., which will allow them to work on their activities with a whole new vibe. But how exactly do your Sims brew tea in The Sims 4?


Where to Get the Tea?

You can have tea through three different ways in the game. To purchase these, simply go to Buy/Build Mode, go to the kitchen category, then select Kitchen Appliances and Miscellaneous. Scroll through these categories until you find the following tea brewers and tea sets.

  • Tea Magic Personal Brewer – The Tea Magic Personal Brewer is available for 275 simoleons and can brew 3 cups of tea at a time. This appliance has handy features like a programmable timer, cup and pot settings, a lemon twist, and more. Each tea will cost 15 simoleons to brew. 
  • Double Happiness Tea Set – Introduced in The Sims 4: My Wedding Stories, this tea set is available for 290 simoleons in the game. It includes a Chinese-inspired teapot and a set of tea cups on a tray. This set can steep 6 cups of tea at a time.
  • Just a Spot of Tea, Tea Set – This floral tea set is inspired by the England tea culture, and the included teapot and teacups feature delicate flowers. This one is also introduced in The Sims 4: My Wedding Stories and is available for 305 simoleons. This set can also steep 6 cups of tea at a time.

Take note that you can only steep the more expensive teas using the latter two tea sets. In a similar vein, there are also some teas that you can only brew using the Tea Magic Personal Tea Brewer.

What Are The Benefits of Sims 4 Teas?


Let’s say your Sim is an Actor and has a gig in a couple of hours. They will ideally be in the mood suggested to them by their agency to give their best performance. Right before they leave for their gig, they can brew themselves a nice hot cup of tea to get into whatever mood the gig needs them to be in. Or, perhaps, your Sim is an Influencer and notices that Confidence vlogs are trending. They can then choose to brew some Earl Grey which will help them get in the right mood required to to successfully record that vlog. However, although it is great at making mood magic, drinking too much tea can hurt your sim’s bladder.

What About The Sakura Tea?

If you have The Sims 4 City Living Expansion Pack, make sure to attend the Romance Festival in the Fashion District. You’ll see beautiful fountains of Sakura tea that will get your Sim in the right mood to match the atmosphere of the festival. If they drink this tea, they will have flirty moodlets and will be able to boldly ask about the relationship status of other Sims at the festival. Yup! Since life is about taking chances, let your Sims drink this tea and then allow them to ask the Sims of their dreams! It might just be the tea that will help change their relationship status.

The Addictive Teas of the Sims 4

Sims can drink tea as much as they want! One thing we’ve noticed though, is that the moment you let your Sims start using the Tea Brewer or the tea sets in the game, they will autonomously keep reaching for newer cups as long as they have finished drinking their current one. Yup! Definitely an addictive drink for them, much like their cups of Joe. Also, teas are good for only 10 hours, thus, you might want to take this into account whenever your Sims brew any cup. You wouldn’t want them to waste a single precious serving of these healing liquids.
