As you've probably read/heard on the news today, two new flavors from the soft drink giants are hitting Japan:

Coca-Cola Plus Catechin

Reported by the AP (http://www.google.com/hostednews/canadianpress/article/ALeqM5gSan4EKW_-uC-3gjrx9mz5usNEpw) to have a green tea flavor, plus "antioxidants called catechins, leaves a slight green tea aftertaste and is mainly targeted at health-conscious women in their 20s and 30s"

Pepsi Shiso

Continues Pepsi's odd string of yearly flavors in Japan, this one seems to have a hint of basil ([url=http://www.google.com/hostednews/canadianpress/article/ALeqM5gSan4EKW_-uC-3gjrx9mz5usNEpw) or mint leaf.
