Scientists investigating a possible connection between the average temperature that people have tea and cancer of the oesophagus have suggested that people in Kenya, particularly in the west, drink the hottest tea in the world.

The study, published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, looks into trying to explain why there are many cases of the cancer in western Kenya. "Thermal injury from hot food and beverages" has been mooted as a possible cause, it says.

According to a summary, the researchers have not drawn any definitive conclusions but suggest that the evidence should be evaluated further.

But Cancer Epidemiology has published a tea temperature chart indicating that, among the countries surveyed, Kenyans like it the hottest - at 72.1C.
