    It is not idiomatic. I could feel that the tea was hot sounds better. Commented Jan 2, 2021 at 17:54
  • As Kate says: Could mean that you were hot when you tested the tea. I feel/felt used like this is possible. It's a way of saying that you feel/felt exploited in some manner! Commented Jan 2, 2021 at 18:36
