Since time was of the essence with this I did an internet search and found it's 20-40 minutes after eating or drinking anything.
And I did find that to be true - there was a big difference in temperature between right after I ate, in 10 minutes, 20 minutes, 30 minutes and 40 minutes. Well, less so between 30 and 40, but right after eating to 10 to 30 was significantly different.
