Blending green tea and lemonade makes for a beverage that has almost universal appeal -- and that seems to be exactly what Inko’s is going for with this variety. The flavor is extremely enjoyable and refreshing, with just the right amount of green tea, lemon, and sweetness. We like that they’ve used green tea rather than black tea (the traditional base for this type of product), which gives it a subtle earthy note at the finish. At 100 calories and 26g of sugar (fructose crystals) per can, the product is something that makes for a nice middle ground between the high calorie and sugar products from the big brands and the unsweetened products that can be found in the natural channel. Visually, the 16 oz. white can has a clean and easy-to-read design that has a premium vibe. However, the gold accent color makes the white text behind it somewhat difficult to read, depending on the lighting. Still, it’s obvious what this drink is and the polished look definitely sets the tone for the extremely enjoyable liquid inside. Overall, a very nice job from Inko’s.
