Can Hot tea really cool you down

Is it true or just an old wive's tale?
It's a tale we've all heard, usually in the form of a helpful suggestion from a friend.
Whenever you mention that you're hot, someone will point out that (believe it or not!) you
can cool off by drinking hot tea. The logic behind this claim, is that the hot tea makes
you sweat and that helps cool you off. Makes perfect sense, doesn't it? Funny how no one
ever suggests that turning up the heat in your house would actually make you cooler.

But many people can't help think that it still makes sense in some way. Well, I'm going to
explain to everyone why it doesn't work. Since I am not a physicist in any sense, the
scientific details have been simplified. In a nutshell:


The problem in the logic lies with the laws of thermodynamics. The amount of heat lost by
sweating and evaporation will never exceed the amount of heat gained by the hot drink
you've consumed.
