A new International Journal of Cancer study found that those drinking daily tea at 140 degrees had a 90% higher risk for esophageal cancer.

Tea is often associated with a number of health benefits, so for many this may come as a surprise.

Research published Wednesday in the International Journal of Cancer tracked the habits of more than 50,000 tea drinkers in Golestan, a province in northeastern Iran. Over a 10-year period, 317 new cases of esophageal cancer were developed.

The study found that those who drank more than 700 ml (almost 24 ounces) of tea a day at a temperature of 60 degrees Celsius (140 degrees Fahrenheit) had a 90 percent higher risk for esophageal cancer.
