1. Do Chinese people like to drink tea or coffee?
Well, maybe in the past most Chinese people would show their preference for tea, as it is a traditional beverage in China. However, as you can see there are so many coffee shops on the street, I guess it is really hard to say what Chinese people like to drink, coz it is truly personal.
