coffee versus tea in China

coffee versus tea in China

Coffee has become very popular in China nowadays. Franchise chains like Starbucks and Costa coffee has expanded really fast by opening many stores in first and second tier cities. Especially Chinese office workers in big cities like to drink coffee to stay focused. We noticed TChing’s post about this topic and found it quiet interested that they are hoping that Coffee will outpace Tea in China.

They drink Starbucks because they can show off they have a good job, they made it. This effect might be reduced when coffee becomes more common. Also many Chinese are genetically allergic to milk, so cappuccinos and lattes are not an option for them.
