Dear Sumit,

The molecules in a warm soup are more active than those in a cold soup. This means more of the flavors are more easily liberated into the air where they can be picked up by the nose and infusing the liquid of the soup itself, where it comes in contact with the taste-buds in the mouth.

Some soups are served cold on purpose, such as vichyssoise, which is a potato and leek soup.

Thank you.

the hot soup is tastier because it can expand on a greater area on your tongue as compared to the cold soup and hence more and more of taste buds come in contact with the soup and hence give a better taste...
