Why are cold beverages usually more refreshing? Can a hot beverage be Refreshing?

Because the colder beverage stimulates the nerves on the top of your mouth more than a hot one and causes you to feel it more. A hot beverage can be refreshing too but less than a colder one.

I think a lot of it is in how you define refreshing, a subjective thing that’s probably conditioned in you to associate with cooling off.

And since cold drinks cool you off, well, there you go.

But the textbook definition of refresh is to reinvigorate, so taking that definition , hot coffee definitely can refresh.

Cold drinks refresh me when I’m hot, and hot drinks refresh me when I’m cold. So it’s all relative I’d say.
