听说今早在上海飘雪了。
I've heard there were flurries in Shanghai this morning.

难道苏州也有吗?我错过了。 [:'(]
Could it be there were also some in Suzhou? I missed it.

Merci! Plus souvent qu'autrement, j'aime dire les mêmes choses en finnois que j'aime dire en français, si je peux. [:D]
Thank you! More often than not, I like to say the same things in Finnish that I like to say in French, if I can.

Ah d'accord, alors de bizarres chants conçus il y a des millénaires par les prêtres déments d'une étrange religion oubliée.
Oh okay, so bizarre chants composed thousands of years ago by the insane priests of a forgotten, eldritch religion.

Realmente no me gusta el sabor de té. Cuando decir ese a algunas personas, reaccionan como he blasfemado. Afortunadamente para mí, té no es tan popular en los EE. UU. como en algunos otros países.
I don't really like the taste of tea. When I tell some people that, they act like I've blasphemed. Thankfully for me, tea isn't as popular in the US as it is in some other countries.

J'adore du thé mais je ne suis pas sûr ce que mes préférés sont appelés
I really like tea but I'm not sure what my favorite ones are called.

Fruchtiger Tee hab' ich gern aber östlicher Tee ist sehr gut auch.
I like fruity tea but Eastern tea is very good too.

Comunque non sono un grande fan di quelli della Inghilterra. Hanno bisogna di più gusto.
I'm not a big fan of those from England though. They need more flavor.

Bottomline is chá has an acute and que doesn't really work in that sentence. I'm brazilian, which i guess is good since you seem to be going for Brazilian Portuguese.

As for me it's white tea, but i drink mate tea and black tea a lot too.

my keyboard doesn't have a dead key for that diacritic so I leave it out (intentionally), thanks for the help grammatically though

wish to drink mate, [it] is apparently delicious.

First, "jerba" doesn't exist. If you wanted the cognate to sp 'hierba' that's 'erva'. Also you don't want to use erva in that sentence, unless of course you're talking about weed, which I reckon you're not. You want "mate" there. And apparently = aparentemente.

Moi je n'aime pas le thé, au moins les thés que j'ai essayés. Ils sont soit trop doux soit trop amers.
I don't like tea, at least the teas I've tried. They're either too sweet or too bitter.

Un jour quand j'étais à Starbucks, on m'a offert un échantillon gratuit d'un thé aromatisé.
Once when I was at Starbucks, they offered me a free sample of a flavored tea.

L'arôme était si fort que le thé ne goûtait plus le thé. Et voilà, je l'ai bien aimé.
The flavoring was so strong that the tea no longer tasted like tea. And I liked it.

I missed a couple syllables... also, the articles I had read on mate had said that it was referred to by the first word of its full name (yerba maté) in the countries of south america that consumed it, so I wrote it as the articles said it was in portuguese, though they might've mixed up portuguese and spanish

Definitely. Yerba maté is definitely spanish and shortening it for the first word is definitely spanish too.

In Portuguese, 'mate' or 'chá mate' refers to what wikipedia calls mate cocido, while what seems to be just mate in English is 'chimarrão'. There is also tererê which is basically mate made with cold instead of hot water.
