How to display Chinese characters in Python?

I have an excel file that contains Chinese characters. I imported it to jupyter notebook using Pandas. The code I used is shown below:

data = pd.read_excel('foodjournal.xlsx', encoding='utf-8')
words = data['name'].values.tolist()

I have Chinese characters such as this:

êùçè•≠

What type of encoding is this? How can I display this as a Chinese character?
