too darn hot

I hate overly hot food. A slight steam is acceptable in the case of tea, coffee and soup but I want to be able to sip or slurp it within a minute. I do not understand some peoples' insistence upon mouth blisteringly hot food. Is there any flavor left at that temperature? What is the appeal? Cool it!

I find a lot of foods taste better once they've had a chance to cool. Puddings and barbecue, notably.

I drive my man nuts by leaving cups of tea sitting out to cool. Sometimes it's absent mindedness, but it stems from not wanting to burn my mouth. He won't drink tea once it's cool, and projects this preference onto me no matter how many times I remind him that I'm the opposite.
