In brief: Dark foods & drinks

Tea, coffee, berries, curries, soda can all cause staining of teeth.
Very hot drinks can cause microfractures of your tooth surface, revealing the yellow surface beneath. In addition, the change in temperature can cause the surface of your tooth to expand, allowing stains to settle into the enamel. The dark color of foods stain the white of the enamel on your teeth too.

In brief: Coffee, Wine, Fruit

Foods with dark fruits especially dark berries, red wine, and caffeine related drinks including coffee, tea and cola are the major contributors to staining of teeth that often results in the yellowish tint.

In brief: Lots

Smoking is worst offender. Any pigmented food, especially if acidic, such as tomato sauce, coffee, tea, colas, mustard, saffron, etc.
Some bacteria also produce pigments. Talk to your Dentist about cleaning and whitening your teeth, and tips to keep them white.
