Why is drinking hot tea preferred over drinking hot water in the winter?

  • During winters out skin is dry and dull.
  • During winters we eat more.
  • During winters we drink dehydrating fluids.
  • Excess of dehydrating fluids also cause chills.

The body temperature has to be maintained at same level during summers and winters.

The mechanism of doing these is mainly varying the amount of fluids that our body carries during summers and winters.

We eat more because cells have lesser water in winters and they metabolise more in winters.

That also translate to generating more energy in winters as compared to summers.

People who drink more than 6 cups of tea a day also experience more chills. The reason – tea contains dehydrating agents and water.

Body will not except caffeine beyond a limit. So dehydration due to a dehydrating agent cannot work beyond a point.

That means if we drink 10 cups of tea it will stop dehydrating most of the people.

But that will result in lodging of more hot fluids in the body. Hot water is hydrating.

so body will store more water and cause more chills.

So tea will become counter productive measure.
