In the Word of Wisdom, the Lord commands Mormons to abstain from harmful substances. 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).

Why Don't Mormons Drink Hot Drinks?The "Word of Wisdom" actually doesn't mention coffee by name. 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.

Many Mormons aren’t sure why the church forbids hot beverages because they are allowed to drink caffeinated soft drinks. It has long been assumed that because tea and coffee contain caffeine (which is addictive), that was the reason for avoidance. However, it seems that many Mormons follow what the health code advises without questioning why.

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.

They were crazy for Postum. Postum was a roasted grain and molasses drink produced by Kraft Foods. It was discontinued from production in 2007. Mormons also favor the following drinks served both warm and cold: herbal tinctures, milk, and non-alcoholic apple drinks. They also enjoy Italian sodas, fruit drinks, and milkshakes. Postum 8 Oz.

Mormons opt not to drink iced black/green iced tea/hot tea and coffee along with alcohol specifically because it’s in the Words of Wisdom, specifically the Doctrine and Covenants, Section 89, which states that the use of ‘hot drinks’ are forbidden.

There is a simple reason why Mormons don’t drink coffee: We believe the prophet Joseph Smith received revelation from God commanding the church to follow a specific diet. We believe that God blesses us with health and other spiritual blessings for following this commandment. This is not unusual when you think about it.

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.
