This Australian Brewery Released Beer Flavoured Tea Bags
If you’re loyal to beer all day long, then Victoria Bitter’s beer flavoured tea is the answer for you when a real beer may not be appropriate!

Beer lovers, rejoice! You can now buy beer flavoured tea, thanks to Victoria Bitter, an Australian brewing company. Founded in 1854, Victoria Bitter has been brewing (nearly) the same recipe since and has always been focused on providing beers to beat that Australian heat! However, sometimes you can’t always toss back a Victoria Bitter, so they’ve created the VB Tea for a cuppa anytime, anywhere!
What is Beer Tea?
The beer flavoured cup of tea, known officially as VB Tea, was made to quench the beer enthusiast’s early morning thirst and late night craving! Made with Ceylon black tea and Victoria Bitter’s Super Pride Hops, VB Tea is sourced from local ingredients and is vegan and gluten-free!
Is there any alcohol in VB Tea?
No, VB Tea is a non-alcoholic beverage! Sorry, unfortunately, beer flavoured tea will not get you drunk. (And perhaps that’s for the best.)
Why should you try beer tea? Is beer tea healthier than regular beer?
While you may be craving a beer, sometimes you need a drink with a little boost of caffeine – likely first thing in the morning or before going to bed in the evening. Coming in a 24 pack, of course, the Victoria Bitter’s beer flavoured tea is everything you could have hoped for. It looks like beer, it tastes like (hot) beer and is made by your favourite beer company.
For those of you wondering, “Why do we need a tea that tastes like beer?” – the answer is simple. We probably didn’t need a beer tea, but now that it’s here, we’re all better off.
Imagine coming back from a late-night out and you’re feeling like a nightcap, but you shouldn’t drink anymore for safety reasons. Boom. Beer flavoured tea. Or you’re up before work in the morning and you’re feeling exhausted – have a beer tea. The refreshing taste of beer, along with the boost of caffeine, should get you ready for the workday.
Where can you buy beer-flavoured tea?
You can buy VB beer flavoured tea bags on the Victoria Bitters website. Unfortunately, the beer tea is already sold out within days of release (crying emoji) – however, keep checking back for its eventual restock!
