“However, according to our findings, drinking very hot tea increases the risk of oesophageal cancer, so it’s best to wait until hot beverages cool down before drinking.”

“Compared to those who drank less than 700 mL of tea per day at temperatures below 60 degrees Celcius, drinking 700mL or more per day at a temperature higher than 60 degrees Celcius was consistently associated with an approximately 90 percent increase in oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC),” the researchers wrote.

“Our findings add to the growing body of evidence linking hot beverage consumption to ESCC,” says the study’s lead author.
