Tea & Coffee are often brewed using boiling or near boiling water 180-210 deg F ( 82 - 99 deg C ) temperatures that can cause scalding burns. Use a simple inexpensive kitchen thermometer like the one depicted in my images

I was studying the microwave heating of filtered water in a glass measuring cup with my thermometer : the way that I prefer heating water for organic green tea brewing : repurposed the thermometer for safety testing the drinking temperature of my morning green tea :)
