Interesting Fact - Tea

People in the UK prefer to drink their tea at a temperature of 56-60°C.

(It's probably why we add cold milk to it and it is lucky, as adding cold milk makes it cool enough to reduce the risk of developing cancer of the oesophagus. According to research at the University of Tehran, drinking hot tea (65-69°C) is associated with twice the risk of developing oesophageal cancer, and drinking very hot tea (70°C or more) is associated with an eight-fold increased risk.

I'm glad I drink my tea with milk.)
