In The Sims 4, tea can be used to achieve various emotional states when drunk. It functions similarly to coffee, but does not stave off loss of energy. There are six types of tea in the base game and two introduced in Spa Day and Cats & Dogs. Tea can be brewed with the "Tea Magic Personal Brewer", which can be purchased in Build Mode for §275. Brewing once grants 3 cups of the chosen tea type, and it will, like any other perishable consumable, spoil in 10 hours after being brewed.

Tea typesEdit

The tea names are references to actual tea, in the real-world; some have an altered name, while others have the actual name in-game.

  • "Earl Grey, Hot" is a reference to Star Trek: The Next Generation in which Captain Jean-Luc Picard would ask the replicator for Earl Grey tea with such a quote. The confidence boost may also be referencing the character's status as Captain or to "Boldly go where no one has gone before" ("Bold confidence" are the words on the buff)
