According to the doctor, the warming effect of any tea is only psychological. Margarita Arzumanyan, a nutritionist and gastroenterologist, said that hot tea in the cold season is considered a universal remedy to cheer up and warm up. But this drink can be dangerous to health.
According to the doctor, too high a temperature for the tea is very harmful, as it can damage the esophagus and larynx.
You should drink tea in winter and in the cold season when it is slightly cooled. Regular damage and burns to the esophagus and larynx are dangerous, as they can cause other, more dangerous disorders.
“It’s better if the tea is in line with your body temperature. It can be a little hotter, 40 degrees, but you shouldn’t drink boiling water for sure. I would recommend waiting for five minutes to avoid a burning sensation,” the doctor explained, according to Sputnik radio.
She noted that herbs should be added to warming tea: thyme, dried apples, orange peels, and cinnamon. And it is worth remembering that the warming effect of any tea is only psychological.
“Tea warms you up at the moment: your mouth feels the temperature, it seems to us that we are warm, but we don’t feel the temperature in our stomach. It’s more of a psychological effect,” the expert emphasized.
It is also worth drinking karkade tea in the fall. This Sudanese rose drink contains anthocyanins that strengthen the walls of blood vessels. This tea consists of vitamins and organic acids that help improve the general condition of the body. Karkade tea strengthens the immune system and reduces the risk of developing respiratory diseases.
However, karkade tea should be consumed in moderation, as the acid can affect the destruction of tooth enamel.
