Tea flavored Coca Cola to debut in Japan
There was an article today announcing the debut of green tea flavored Coca Cola in Japan, which is to arrive in stores on June 8. I don’t know about you, but somehow the idea of a sugary, artificially flavored, syrupy, caffeine loaded drink enhanced with green tea flavoring just doesn’t sound very appealing.

I guess brands, companies and the media are still riding the green tea wave, rolling out everything from slimming green tea diet pills to green tea skin products. Don’t get me wrong, I love the idea of getting creative with tea and flavored tea, such as tea cocktails, tea-infused cooking and tea infused desserts, but a lot of these products are all marketing and no substance and have absolutely nothing to do with green tea. The tea purists must be cringing.
