Abstract: Tea beer is a new type of beer, obtained by adding tea or tea extract in the brewing process with the dual flavor characteristics of tea and beer. The development of tea beer would not only enrich the types, flavors, and physiological effects of beer, but also improve the utilization rate and additional value of tea resources and benefit for the common development of tea and beer industries. However, the studies of tea beer on pretreatment of raw materials, fermentation and clarification technologies were still not mature. Therefore, this paper systemically summarized the processing technologies of tea beer, including the pretreatment of raw materials, fermentation and clarification technologies. Based on that, we made the prospects for the future of tea beer, aiming to provide a reference for the research and development of tea beer in depth.

Key words: tea beer, beer, processing technology, research progress
