Green Tea Flavored Coke hits Japan

Green Tea Coca-Cola is out just in time to start that new carbonated diet plan. It contains tea antioxidants called catechins, leaves a slight green tea aftertaste and is mainly targeted at health-conscious women in their 20s and 30s. So, I guess it’s not just for when you have company over to the house.

The taste?

According to Food For Thought:

“Diet Coke with extra aspartame is what comes to mind. Although green tea extract is listed in the ingredients, my tastebuds strained themselves to the limit of their powers to detect some a hint of tea flavor, and failed. To be fair, it’s not bad tasting, but even though it supposedly has catechin in it (like anyone is really going to switch from tea to Coke to get their antioxidants), Green Tea Coke seems to be pretty green tea-less.”

Rival Pepsi Cola is countering with another exotic cola – Japanese basil-flavored “Pepsi Shiso,” which hits stores in late June. Can’t wait.
