Is it really true that most Chinese people prefer tea? Or, is that just a traditional drink?
I'm sure that coffee must be popular too, especially now that Starbucks is a global phenomenon.
I know that tea is very popular in China. I would think that there would be some coffee drinkers though from there.
Angie, I wonder when coffee first made it to China. I don't think this is a native drink, like tea is.
Anyway, here is a local 'Starbucks' shop in a Chinese village. Cute, huh?
Tea is the most popular drink in China. But coffee become popular also. In urban area, it's easy to find a coffeehouse. This morning, I had a cup of cappuccino in McDonald's in Shanghai.
Is that a face on the cappuccino? Looks very good. When did coffee start to become popular in China?
Many traditional Chinese drinks and dishes are not as popular with the younger crowd, who go for the more socially accepted norms. As always, the younger generation will choose what their friends are drinking, even if that's coffee. After all, coffee shops are not just about coffee but friendship as the show "Friends" taught us.
