Water, in general, cleans blood; hot water cleans liver. I don't know if there is also a similar effect due to the substances dissolved in the tea.
Surely by the time the water reaches the liver it's been cooled to body temperature !!..No ?..yes ?
But here we are used to inject hot water directly inside the liver  ;)
Apart from jokes, I think if you don't drink just small amounts of water, its temperature don't go down to body's temperature so fast, and should still be a bit hotter when it reach the liver.

Does that help to flush out a liver that may have say to much medication or other toxin???
Ah, yes, certainly! Water, in general, especially at breakfastless, is always good for it.

My pattern is:-
5:30am - coffee
5:35am - coffee
5:40am - coffee
etc etc
It means you usually can't have activities which last more than 5 minuts uninterruptedly?  :)

I'm new but I'm really excited because I can answer your question so I'm waving my hand and shouting "me sir!, me sir!"
Listen tea contains caffeine Duh about the same amount as your average coffee. BUT it also contains quantities of natural barbiturate substances ie valium. However these are bound up and pass straight through the body unless.... wait for it... you add FAT to the mix. ie milk (or yak butter or ghee or whatever) The barbiturate substances are caught by the fats and then digested and released into your bloodstream making you feel aaaaaahh! So a good proper Henglish cup of tea with milk and sugar gives you a caffeine high and a barbiturate low and a glucose boost. That`s why it makes you feel so good.
I thank you and goodnight.
