    Smile "If your are too heated, it will cool you"

    I read a -- I think it's a poem-- printed on a pack of tea saying how good tea is. Here is part of it:
    "If you are cold, tea will warm you.
    If you are too heated, it will cool you."
    Does "heated" here imply both physically and emotionally heated? I'm not sure.

    A...typo error? And this passage is even printed on the top of that pack of tea, hard for people to ignore!

    A person could be "over-heated."

    That's an amazing beverage there, that makes you warm if you're too cold and makes you cold if you're too warm.
