Yes: You can cautiously eat what you like but be careful to keep th hot liquid away from the extraction site.

Of course: You can resume your normal diet and hygiene the very next day.

Sure: Sure but don't be alarmed if you experience a little more bleeding due to the heat of the tea increasing blood flow to the area. I'd just do it in moderation but if you like warm/hot tea I see nothing wrong with trying to introduce it back into your normal schedule.

Unwise: Can cause clot to wash out resulting in a bone infection called a dry socket. Assuming your extractions were done by a specialist, an Oral Surgeon, you probably left the office with written post-surgical instructions. Please review them.

Need help. Is 6 days enough time to recover from wisdom teeth removal?

Depends: It depends upon your health, age, and difficulty of extraction. It also depends upon what you expect to do after 6 days... Running a race is obviously different from sitting at a desk working... I would suggest discussing this with your dentist.
