My question Is it an illusion if reheated tea burns my tongue but tastes cold? from Jan 6 '21 has been closed on Apr 26 '21 as "Needs more focus". The question is not unfocused. It is true that the question didn't get an answer within 4 month (or even a comment), but I see no indication that rewritting the question (without performing the described simple experiment more carefully and better controlled) would change that.

(The two differences I see to questions like Is it possible that an instant coffee 3 in 1 (or any other type of coffee) is cooling faster than tea? or Does tea made with boiling water cool faster than tea made with boiled (but still hot) water? is that those attracted attention immediately after being posted, and that the rate of cooling is a bit easier to measure than the difference between surface and bulk temperature.)

(For version 1)You have two explicit questions. The first is in the title: "Is it an illusion if reheated tea burns my tongue but tastes cold?". The second is at the very end: "why should there be a difference in how well the oil-like substance is "mixed"?" It seems like the post is asking about both of these at the same time without any specific focus on either.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks: I get two points from your answer: After I have done the described simple experiment more carefully and better controlled, I can ask a separate question about it, if it should still show the same unexpected (for my physical intuition) outcome. The second point I got is how I can improve my current question (independent of whether it will be reopened or whether it will get an answer after being reopened). $\endgroup$ Apr 30 at 15:08
