yeah, they do,

i guess geography is also a key factor to cause these difference,

like "Cool Tea" ,  i once thought it is only tea cooled down in refridge , but people laughed at me and they invited me to drink  this so-called "Cool Tea", it is made of Chinese herb , so bitter , i was advised the more bitter , the better the result for resisting heat...

we eat food mainly made of flour in Northern China , while they eat rice as main food .

the most funny thing is that the language difference in my opinion,  the taxi drivers and waitors , waitresses, in hotel , resturants , like to call female as " Liang Lv" which i could not understood before ,  my friends explained to me it means "beaufiful girl', so i wa very happy when people call me so, but finally i found that they call every female with this word........

the tea you had is very dark/black in colour........but is good......

we have another type Golden/Yellowish plus sweet for some who cannot stand the bitter.....

Like Liangcha, they call you Lianglooi(Lengmooi......)......me Liangcai............
What's on your mind now........ooooooooooooooo la la....Kind Regards
