Why Chinese like drinking boiled water? Well, I think drink boiled water may come from Tradition Chinese Medicine. When I was a child in 1980s Henan province, every family has a pressure wells in their yard. Children like to drink water directly, because it's very sweet and cool. But parents may told us not to drink directly but to drink boiled cool water. Whenver you go to see a TCM doctor, they always told you drink more boiled water...
