Only in Japan..
I hardly drink soft drinks like coke but I do love drinking tea. Jasmine, oolong and green tea are my favorite ones. How about Green tea coke? Sounds so Japanese for me..
I believed the great benefit of antioxidant from green tea but I doubt it will change my perception about coke even it comes in green tea flavour.
Green tea-flavoured Coca Cola hit Japanese stores this Monday (June 8). They claimed that it contains tea antioxidants called catechins, leaves a slight green tea aftertaste and is mainly targeted at health-conscius woman in their 20s and 30s, Coca Cola (Japan) Co. spokesman Katsuya Sato said.
"We wanted to cater to people who are looking for something that tastes good but is also good for health and beauty," he said.
Rival Pepsi Cola is countering with another exotic cola, Japanese basil-flavoured Pepsi Shiso, which will hit stores in late Jue.
