Grew up in the US, drinking tea everyday, british style, with my grandmother. Never liked coffee. Never liked green tea until I came to China and had Longjing in a tea village in Hangzhou (or near there somewhere). I brought a lot home, enough for the next year. Now I'm in china and I like almost every kind of tea I try.

I tried Pu'er in the US once but didn't like it. I'd like to try it again.

:)

Parents & grandparents, and aunts never drank coffee, all always tea. Now my brother drinks coffee, and my son loves coffee and some tea.
A guy I was with for a long time hates even the smell of coffee. So, contrary to popular belief, not all westerners like coffee!
I am not rich.  :L

hehe...

I know...many chinese in abroad like tea very much...mabe it's a complex emotion for miss mother-land or hometown...and I heard the parents require their children to acquaint and drink tea...to keep some chinese culture...and you?...

but now...it's contrary for abroad...maybe original children like to drink coffee...

in fact...most of us feel it's so brinish for coffee...
