The only revealed answer to the question of why hot drinks (interpreted at present as coffee and tea) are prohibited by the Word of Wisdom is "because God told us they are." Faithful members of the Church accept the revelations recorded in the Doctrine and Covenants as scripture, as sustained by a personal witness of the Holy Spirit.

Mormons are not allowed to drink coffee because of the Word of Wisdom, which is a health law found in the unique LDS scripture Doctrine & Covenants 89 whereby God supposedly commanded His people to abstain from hot drinks (interpreted as coffee and tea) as well as tobacco, excessive amounts of meat, and alcoholic beverages.

@Narnian, the only "hot drinks" that are included in the official (minimalist) interpretation are coffee and tea (but not herbal tea). Under the assumption that the phrase "hot drinks" referred to the popular hot drinks of the time, most mormons don't interpret the scripture as referring to temperature. – amcnabb Mar 26 '12 at 16:15

Instead, it talks generally about avoiding "hot drinks." Through additional messages given by God, Mormons have learned that "hot drinks" refer to coffee and black tea. Herbal teas are okay, unless they are made from the same plant as black tea. Other hot drinks like hot chocolate are okay. Why Don't Mormons Drink Caffeine?

  • Mormons are taught not to drink any kind of alcohol (see D&C 89:5–7 ). Mormons are also taught not to drink “hot drinks,” meaning coffee or any tea other than herbal tea (see D&C 89:9 ), and not to use tobacco (see D&C 89:8 ).
