Drinking Very Hot Tea Linked with Risk 1 Type Oesophageal Cancer

A recent study of more than 50,000 people in Iran has suggested a clear link between drinking very hot tea every day and increased risk of squamous cell oesophageal cancer. Although drinking hot tea could raise risk, it is believed to be far smaller than the risk given by alcohol, smoking, diet and obesity.

These results may not apply to people living in the UK however, as there are differences in our tea drinking habits and other lifestyle factors. People in the UK who want to reduce their risk of developing cancer should start with quitting smoking, reducing their intake of alcohol, maintaining a healthy weight and stopping acid reflux. Even so, it is still a sensible precaution to drink your tea at a reasonable temperature.
