Drinking hot tea in hot weather

It may seem that the best solution to find relief during hot and sweltering days is to drink a cold drink. In such situations, sweet, carbonated drinks are particularly attractive and desirable, as they instinctively seem to us to quench our thirst better. Nothing could be further from the truth!

The best way to cool your body is to drink a cup of hot tea. Does it seem unbelievable? This idea was born among the inhabitants of countries with a hot and dry climate . Their experiences became the basis for research that confirms the effectiveness of drinking hot drinks when you want to cool your body.

Where does the idea of ​​drinking hot tea in hot weather come from?

Drinking warm drinks during high temperatures comes from, among others: from Morocco, India, Malaysia, Turkey, Tunisia, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Iran and Saudi Arabia. What do these countries have in common? Each of these places has a hot and dry climate. This is the weather that makes warm drinks a perfect solution to normalize body temperature.

The proverb "Fight fire with fire" is the essence of this method of dealing with heat.

How it's working?

Although it may seem unbelievable, our bodies respond better to warm drinks during hot weather than to chilled ones.

Hot drinks

Drinking hot tea, for example, causes our body temperature to rise, which leads to intense sweating. This may not be the most encouraging argument, but it is certainly desirable if we want to cool our body.

To get rid of unnecessary heat, our bodies secrete more sweat. This then evaporates from the body surface, thereby taking away heat from the skin. This natural cooling system brings relief , but... it turns out to be most effective in places with low humidity.

Cold drinks

The vision of a cool, sweet drink on a hot day seems very encouraging, but it is worth remembering that it will only bring temporary relief. It will not effectively quench your thirst, but will only strengthen it.
