Room temperature

I have heard "al tiempo" for this, but I can't find it in the dictionary. Maybe I should say a temperatura ambiente instead?

Thanks, as always!

Temperatura ambiente is the correct way of saying room temperature (to use in any context). In Mexico, you can use al tiempo when referring to any type of drink that you want at room temperature, i. e., not refrigerated.

En España se dice, según las zonas, "natural" o "del tiempo" (esta última más extendida). Pero "temperatura ambiente", como ha dicho Tomísimo, es la más correcta, la que encontrarás en medicamentos y en alimentos envasados (conservar a temperatura ambiente).

Also the phrase al tiempo can be used as a usage at the Spanish.

Hay que darle al tiempo tiempo.

It's my own opinion.
