Not my cup of tea 不是我所 好 - brandonzin - Brandon Zin Blog

Background and meaning
The phrase “not my cup of tea” means that something is “not to my liking.” According to the Translation Dictionary the expression got its start in the late 1800s when Brits, when referring to the popular drink, began saying that something they liked was their “cup of tea.” But time changes things. Later, probably sometime in the 1920s, the expression took a twist to indicate the opposite.

Examples
  • Mary said she liked shopping and YIng replied "That is not my cup of tea".
  • Some people love football, but it's not my cup of tea.
