Would "Con rắn uống trà." also be correct?

Yes. It's more natural than "uống nước trà" (don't know if it supports by Duo though).

Yes, it is. It's the sentence I entered as well. :)

So, 'nước' is a classifier for liquids? Can it be used before any liquids or it's not common?

You can use it for beverage (maybe), but you can't use it with chemistry element :)))

Because the Mods like things happen like that, so they let the snake drink tea.
