Does it matter if you drink cold/warm coffee or tea?
I mean, they don't need to be drank warm to get the full effect of f.ex staying awake?

It does matter. See influence of heat on enzyme activity. I'm not sure about tea or cofee, but in general, it deffiently matters. Some drugs need to be dissolved into a glass of water, and it says on the box that it needs to be as hot as possible for it to have any effect...

I prefer tea, it doesn't stain your teeth, it does have a moderate taste, and it can prevent many health issues, some that we may not even know of.. so i consider tea healthy and somwhat tasty

The atrists of making good tea say that every brand of tea has specific temperature of water that should be used. Many of those are just below boiling. A know that dog rose (Rosa canina, Rosaceae) tea should not be prepaired with boiling water because of it`s high content of vitamin c while turkish coffe (at least we in Balkan make it this way; MrMistery is in the Romania the same?) should be boild for a minute (after adding coffe into water).

Yes you boil turkish coffee for a while ( if you boil too much at this stage its taste changes- and also you will have your coffee on the cooker. :) ) , put some in every cup, again boil for 3-5 seconds and put the rest.

I think you mean normal coffee. You can't drink turkish coffee ( if we use the same :lol: ) just "warm". It would taste terrible.
