It's 30 degrees
I'm sweating
We're all sweating and nearly naked

Would it be wrong to have a cup of tea.

My husband just asked me if I wanted a cup of tea. I gave him a withering look deserving of his idiocy. (wink)

I had one yesterday in the heat, among.a group of socially distancing friends who were drinking frappé things. I didn't get any hotter, whilst they complained constantly about the heat.

I drink tea all day in all weather. Go for it. grin

Indian people and arabs drink tea so I see no reason to stop drinking just because it's hot outside. If anything it stops me from sweating for a minute.

The necessity for tea is not reduced by the weather conditions. It is never ever unreasonable to have a cup of tea.

Yes I continually drink tea regardless of the weather

Having a cup of tea on a hot day can cool you down providing there's a breeze because the tea will make you sweat more. The sweat absorbs body heat and expels it into the air.

Tea is very refreshing, I drink the same amount in the hot weather asa y other time of the year.

Of course YANBU. I'm on my fourth or fifth one. It's important to stay hydrated when it's warm!

It's National Cream Tea day, drinking tea is mandatory!

I feel cooler if I drink a hot drink than if I drink ice cold drinks. Besides, it's tea. Of course YANBU.

Tea is disgusting horrible stuff, coffee is the way to go.

Yesterday I wish I'd stuck with tea. Instead my friend and I opened a bottle of gin in the garden. Today I'm hungover and sunburnt. So yes, I would recommend tea.

I've had coffee. Latte. My favourite Café creme is in a small village in France, so I sat in the scorching sun on my balcony, closed my eyes and pretended I was there!

Nuts I know, but beyond caring 🤣

Have some tea !

Best thing to do in hot weather. It helps bring up your body temperature causing you to sweat which cools your body down.

Not idiocy at all.

OohThatCat Fri 26-Jun-20 13:54:28

I drink tea and eat hot porridge whatever the weather! I say go for it :D

I feel exactly the, same way about coffee grin Enjoy your tea, OP!

JuanitaJuanita Fri 26-Jun-20 13:58:34

Tea. Yuk!

But I've had several coffees today, and continue to in all weathers!

Wasn’t drinking hot drinks supposed to call you down because it encouraged the production of sweat whereas cold drinks exaggerated the hot feelin
