I am extra-large, that you know
Balancing temperatures, when it's low
Only one of my kind
All letters aligned
If you didn't find me yet,
I'm hidden in a statuette.

What am I?

You are

40

Because

T-shirts come in extra-largeXL = 40 (roman numerals),
Balancing temperatures, when it's low → -40C = -40F, balancing temps,
Only one of my kind, All letters aligned → letters in forty are in alphabetical order, the only numerical word with this property,
And 40Four-T is hidden in a statuette.

The title, too is an allusion to four tea. How do you take yours?

Thanks to @Techidiot and the other TSL regulars for the proper answers.
