    Would prefer + noun + rather than

    Can I say I would prefer tea rather than coffee? Or it's wrong and I have to use only "to" instead "rather than" in these patterns?

    "Rather than" sounds fine to me.

    "Prefer tea to coffee" is fairly uncommon but it works
    "I prefer tea rather than coffee" works well, sort of implies a (small) preference against coffee
    "I prefer tea over coffee." - both are good, but one is better
