well, considering that Tea is an ancient Chinese tradition and that they have been doing for far longer than any British citizen, maybe it would be
wiser to ask an Asian fellow instead!
genetic predisposition has been observed in some cases towards certain habits, but overall, acculturation and its processes are of course bound by
genetics, but not in the form of direct cravings, tea ceremonies form the orient differ greatly form western tea consumption habits.
We could also argue that when one minds the stereotypes the stereotypes end up owning the generalizations with fallacies, as one could say that Brits
are more genetically "wired" to have unhealthy teeth, when we know that everything from the ingest of certain waters to feeding habits have a say in
the problem, not just genetics alone.
So who knows?
