What Do You Think About Green Tea Cola?


You might have already heard Green Tea Coke has hit the Japanese market in 2009. Coca Cola Japan said it is enriched with green tea and good for health and beauty. It looks just like regular coke but it definitely made me wonder how it taste like.


Here's another green tea fusion beverage from the green tea mecca, Shizuoka prefecture, Japan. It is called "Shizuoka Cola" literally.



Yay! The color of this beverage does not disappoint me. The manufacturer of this very unique cola, Kimura Beverage Company, said that they wanted to create cola that goes well with Japanese food. It seems they put lots of thoughts into the balance of cola flavor and green tea flavor. It took them five years in planning and one year for product development. Too bad, Shizuoka Cola is only available in Shizuoka.

Hi Celina, you too got curious, huh? It really made me want to try the green tea cola. Only hope it is not too sweet.

Thanks Hiroko, Yes, ... got curious too, sounds controversial & fun.
I understand fr your blog that Shizuoka Cola is just available in Shizouka, but how about the green tea cola, is it out in the US market in your location already?

It looks like green tea coke is also available only in Japan. Japan creates lots of interesting (sometime weird) stuff.
Here's another interesting drink - Pepsi S
