It is always recommended to have your tea fresh and hot. In fact, there is a saying in Japanese that goes ’Yesterday’s tea bites worse than a snake.’ Meanwhile, in Japan, people consider cold tea as same as poison.
While these might sound a bit over the top, there is actually a scientific reason as well when it comes to avoiding cold tea. According to dieticians, cold tea can irritate the walls of your stomach. This can, in turn, have a bad influence on your diet and digestion.
So to avoid such situations, it’s better to have some freshly brewed tea.
