A new study from China finds that drinking tea at extremely high temperatures may increase a person's risk of esophageal cancer

Not really news. My dentist told me 10 years ago that people from Pakistan had good teeth due to all the tea they drank but also had a lot of throat cancer because they drank it hot.

So you drink hot tea, but also drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes, and you have a higher risk of cancer than the person who doesn't drink hot tea, and also doesn't drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes.

Clearly, it's the tea.

Oh, watch out.  You're gonna lose control.

This is relevant to me! I drink a lot of hot liquids-the hotter the better-and I had no idea that ...

and also smoked tobacco and drank excessive amounts of alcohol - had a five times greater risk of esophageal cancer.

... ok, then. Newsflash: riding horses, along with playing drunkenly with loaded firearms, increases your risk of accidentally shooting yourself!

I had hot toddys this weekend. Brewed tea + honey + lemon + brandy + allspice / nutmeg

Add unsweetened milk or soymilk and 'voila' - cooler tea will prevail

"Indeed, frequently drinking very hot liquids, prepared at temperatures of 149 degrees Fahrenheit (65 degrees Celsius) - which is much hotter than a typical cup of coffee or tea."

What kind of weak-ass tea are they drinking?

Tea is brewed at 195 degrees, 175 if it's white or green. You don't drink it right away, but who "prepares" tea at 149 degrees?

Ditto in Argentina, where people drink steaming hot mate at all hours, and made worse by the bombilla that they use to sip it so that the tea has less time to cool before it reaches the mouth.

"The new study found that daily hot-tea consumption - even if it was served burning hot - was not associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer in people who were not smokers and did not drink alcohol heavily, Lv said."

Oh, so we're just making shiat up for a headline, got it.

Smoking and drinking are bad for you. Let's malign hot tea.

Yes, as was explained in the article.

Just sayin, my Mom loved drinking hot tea and coffee. Not a smoker or a drinker. She died of squaemous cell carcinoma in her esophagus.

I don't drink hot beverages, although an iced-tea or Arnold Palmer is great on a hot day.

Well, lets be honest: if drinking alcohol and drinking hot tea causes cancer, guess which of the two is going bye-bye?

Yes, I read it. Also the part where it said those who don't drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes don't have the problem.

Indicating, as I stated, that the tea isn't really the problem here.

How to make tea. A clip and save guide by Gordon Bennett.

1. Place the teabag in a cup. I like to put the sugar in at this stage but you can add it later if you like.
2. Bring water from the cold tap to a boil. Water from the hot tap is for washing and bathing only.
3. Remove water from heat the moment it boils. Give it a few seconds to cool.
4. Pour the water directly over the teabag.
5. Let the tea steep to taste, between two and five minutes.
6. Remove teabag. Never squeeze the teabag into the tea unless you like horrible, ruined tea.
7. Add milk if you like. Stir.
8. Serve with biscuits. Custard creams are best.

Gordon Bennett:

You know nothing of tea.

How to Prepare Tea

1. Lift the bell.
2. Say "Henrietta, tea please."
3. Be regal for between 1 and 3 minutes.
4. Say "Thank you, Henrietta."
5. Enjoy your tea!

9. Then, get some loose leaf tea and an infuser, and make yourself the good tea.

You misunderstood the article, and perhaps scientific method.

If you take two groups:

A: Smokes and drinks alcohol.
B: Smokes, drinks alcohol and drinks pipping hot tea.

And group B has a high prevailance of a specific type of cancer. Then the tea could be the differentiator, especially if you have an idea what the tea is doing.

Honest word?

Loose green tea is usually just one pass through a strainer on top of the glass or pot, not left in the water.

And it's the best tea, IMO, that actually has "tea" plant in it.

Teabags? The tea in those are mostly floor sweepings.  Get the looseleaf, whole leaf tea.

This is were it helps to be drifty. I'll make a mug, then forget I left it steeping. By the time I walk by it again and go, "Ooh Tea!" it's usually either cold or just right. I don't mind long steeps at all as I prefer my tea as strong as I can get it.

Earl Grey is my default tea, but I like to try flavors. Peach tea is wonderful.
 
2018-02-06 11:49:59 AM  
Once I remove the tea bag, I add sugar/honey then throw in an ice cube so I can drink it. I like iced tea too, so as long as it doesn't scald me I'm not too picky.

I think they were mixing up words.  Think they meant drunk at 149.  But you're right about brewing temps.

This makes me want a cup of tea and a smoke.

Just before boiling. Don't burn it.

I remember reading in the 80s about throat cancer in certain South American cultures do to their affinity for an extremely hot beverage they drank through a metal straw. Can't remember if it was cocoa or coffee bases drink.

Yep.  Yerba Mate.  I have a couple pounds of it at home I bought down in Argentina & pull it out from time to time.  The straw is typically made from "german silver" aka nickel silver.

Heh, I always thought that sounded more like what you'd say after you smash your thumb with a hammer.
 
2018-02-06 03:17:23 PM  
Welp, my choice is the same as my paternal grandfather's: die of throat cancer or Alzheimer's. I'll take the cancer, thanks.

I'm sort of one of those hot tea drinkers, but more like piping hot spaghetti that I didn't cool it down enough.

Now this is serious!
If theres one thing in this country that really bothers me
Is the inability of Yanks to make a good cup of tea
Instructions are printed on the teabag
But either they can't read, or they think it's a gag
Pour boiling water over the tea
How simple and clear can the instructions be?
They bring you a cup with a lemon slice
And an unopened tea bag beside it (How nice)
And a pot of water and it may be hot
But boiling it isn't so tea you have not
It's boiling water that brings out tea's flavor
With a dash of milk you've a real brew to savor
They drink luke brown water that looks like gnat pee
And it's got nothing to do with a good cup of tea
Pour boiling water over the tea
How simple and clear
Can the instructions be?
