Billed as a "Sparkling Wasabi Green Tea," this product is a mid-calorie (thanks to the use of erythritol) sparkling green tea beverage that has been flavored with ginger, mint, and wasabi. Despite the use of wasabi, the drink is not spicy, although there's definitely a slight note of wasabi on the finish. Otherwise, the product is very smooth and clean, with green tea, ginger, and mint providing the primary flavors in the drink. While the drink tastes sweet, the flavors of the drink are kept in check, which is a good thing when you are working with potentially overpowering flavors like these. The blend of sugar and erythritol works well, with 70 calories per bottle and absolutely no aftertaste. The drink's 12 oz. glass bottle seems like a good fit for the brand, positioning it nicely in the premium CSD category. However, we think that it's hard to understand exactly what you are getting into when looking at the label, especially if you've never had sparkling green tea. And that's the biggest challenge for this product — selling a concept that's new and unique. While we don't feel as though the current label design is doing it perfectly, what's inside the bottle is extremely enjoyable and unique.
