China, the traditionally tea drinking country, has caught the Starbucks coffee bug.

According to Starbucks latest quarterly report, China is the cause for boosts in revenue in its Asia-Pacific stores.

In 2012 the coffee giant opened 500 stores in the Asia-Pacific Region and has no plans of slowing down. By the end of this year, Starbucks is expected to open its thousandth store in China.

And by the end of 2014 China will surpass Canada to become the second largest market after the US.
