I heard people from other countries like drinking cool water, which sounds so strange for me. Why Chinese like drinking hot water rather than cool water? Why other country people don’t like hot water? I heard foreign babies even drink cool water and cool milk. Is it true? Why? </p> <p>Why Chinese like drinking hot water rather than cool water?

    ancient people didn't understand germ theory

    didn't realize boiling water was killing microbes

    not a fuck was given

    empirical observation that people drinking hot water were far less susceptible to shitting all of their internal organs out compared to people who were drinking water from a drainage ditch or something

    eh? Chinese people drink tea ( even in gyms... sometimes I think some of them are addicted to drinking tea). They only drink hot water when they are ill.

    In other words, Chinese only drink ¨water¨ when there aren´t other kinds of drinks available.
