Towards the end of a bread-based meal someone decides to have, in addition to their original plans, a hot drink (eg tea).

After the meal, they say birkas hamazon. Only after this do they then realise that they have drunk only half of the drink - half of it still remains. Would they be permitted to say borei nefashos after finishing the drink?


Once birkat hamazon has been said, the blessing on the drink is no longer valid, so a fresh blessing has to be made on the remaining portion of the drink; that in turn requires borei nefashos.

  • @msh210 the poster who gave me the information that I worked into this answer - they're not my claims - didn't give any sources. Since his comments have now been deleted I can't see his name to be able to ping him and ask for help. Perhaps someone else knowledgeable might be moved to provide the correct sources? – chrysanthemum Aug 23 '15 at 10:51
