Starting today, green tea-flavored Coca-Cola will hit Japanese stores according to Coca Cola (Japan) Co. spokesman Katsuya Sato.

It is said to contain tea antioxidants called catechins, leaves a slight green tea aftertaste, and is mainly targeted at health-conscious women in their 20s and 30s.

He says: “We wanted to cater to people who are looking for something that tastes good but is also good for health and beauty.”

Rival Pepsi Cola is countering with another exotic cola – Japanese basil-flavored “Pepsi Shiso,” which hits stores in late June.



What do you think of these drinks?

Would you dare try them?

As from what I’ve heard, they are quite tasty. Go ahead, try it. Just let me know how it taste. 🙂
