    Question Would you like

    I'm gonna make tea. Would you like? / Would you like some?

    Can I say just "Would you like?" ? If so, which one is more appropriate?

    Thank you in advance.

    If you accept 'gonna' in writing, then either answer is fine.

    "Gonna" is very conversational and not correct English. The point fivejedjon was making is that if you are going to use "gonna", then the grammatical correctness of the second half doesn't matter.

    If you're just chilling with your friends and say "I'm gonna make tea", you can certainly say "would you like?" or "want some?"

    If you want to write this in correct English, you would say "I am going to make some tea. Would you like some?"
