Tea. Chinese tea. Quite nice once you get used to it. This one time we were served green tea. Chinese green tea. A staple in china. Tastes funny but good. Different from the Japanese green tea. That taste really fishy. haha. Really..have you tried japanese green tea? Ugh!
I'm a coffee drinker. Would choose coffee over tea. Well, except when its teh tarik ("kurang manis please"). But when you're in China, and they serve Tea everywhere, you dont have much of a choice. They do serve coffee but it tastes blah!! So stick to their tea. Its quite nice once you get used to it. You have to get used to it because they serve it everywhere!! They dont drink water...just tea.
And on plastic cups. Hot tea on plastic cups. Is that ok?
