    It depends on the kind of weather you are in smile ideally room temperature is considered BEST for any consumption of fluid.

      Respectfully, I've never heard an reason why room temerature would be considered the best for consumption of liquids. Why would this be the case?

    I have heard that drinking cold water increases metabolism and burns calories since your body has to work to warm it up.

    Ice cold water not only tastes better, but also does burn more calories.

    Room temperature is ok, but I'm not aware of any reason why that would be preferable or optimal.

    Room temperature water works great and your body need not to work out out more to gain normal temperature

    It has been said that room temp is better because it doe not shock your system.
    Most people find it thirst quenching in hot summer heat to drink something icy cold. It is ok so long as you are not eat food at the same time. The cold water will put your stomach juices in shock and it will slow down digestion. If you eat something greasy (fries and a burger)and the water is icy cold, the oil will harden like lard. EEWE! It is better to drink a hot tea if you are eating anything greasy.
    So...room temp is better. Icy cold when it is the only thing you are consuming. Then give yourself 20 minutes before eating. Let the water absorb through your system.
