comment How would I translate the two morphemes 基腐 together?
@TylerGleason Hmmm that sounds like a very ambiguous usage if not completely inaccurate, at least to me. But if that's the case, wpt's answer is worth considering.

comment Expressing “tea is not just a drink”
I second to @Stan and I would further clarify that in Chinese culture, if you want to be polite, either take the tea as a gesture for both gratitude for the person and likeness for tea in general, or just take coffee and don't say anything. The conscious decision to not clarify is considered a good thing.
