Changing Emotions With the Tea Magic Personal Brewer

Tea Magic Personal Brewer Overview

The Tea Magic Personal Brewer is one of the objects in The Sims 4 that you may love to use or just really ignore because you don’t really see the point of including it. Well, rather than just ignore this object like most players probably do, we are going to explore this object to see if it should be a household staple.

Tea Magic Personal Brewer Description

Brew all your favorite teas at the touch of a button. Includes handy features like a programmable timer, cup and pot settings, lemon twist, and a spoonful of sugar option.

It can be purchased for $275. It also can only be placed on counters.

If you were to just read the description you would think this tea brewer is awesome. There are a bunch of options Sims can try. In simality, it works just like the coffee makers in the game but with tea instead. Unlike the coffee makers, the teas influence multiple emotions instead of just one.

How to Use the Tea Magical Personal Brewer

Click on the Tea Magical Personal Brewer and select “Brew Pot of…”.
Select the type of tea you want your Sim to brew.
While the tea is brewing, your Sim will stand in front of the tea brewer and wait for the tea to finish. When the tea is done brewing, you will hear a beep. You can cancel the action and the tea will still brew on its own.
The Tea Magical Personal Brewer brews 3 cups of tea. After it is done brewing, which is about 15 Sim minutes, a Sim can get a cup of tea by selecting the “Grab a Drink” option. If no one wants a cup of tea, simply select “Empty” and the Sim will empty out the brewer.

Requires no cleaning

The Add Stick-Free Pot and the Self-Cleaning basically do the same thing for the tea brewer. The tea brewer will no longer need to be cleaned with these upgrades. It is better to go with the Add Stick-Free Pot .

The Add Infuser upgrade defeats the purpose of the brewer. The brewer is used for a specific emotion. Instead of providing a random inspired moodlet, a new tea option would have been better. This way, players could have chosen when to get the inspired moodlet.

An important upgrade the tea brewer could have included is one that makes the brewer unbreakable. This is needed because after a few uses the brewer tends to break. This would be useful if you needed to stack moodlets.

It is not really worth it to upgrade the Tea Magical Personal Brewer. If you do want to upgrade I would go with the Add Stick-Free Pot because it is the most useful upgrade because you will not need to clean the brewer in the future.
